This was a great afternoon museum! I was glad to see all the Pittsburgh history it held. There was a wonderful Louis and Clark exhibit and a Mr. Rogers exhibit as well.

We came here specifically to see the original sets from Mr. Rogers neighborhood, but were pleasantly surprised by the hands-on children's area on the third floor, and the in-dept exhibit about prohibition currently in the first floor gallery as well.

If you don't have a special affiliation to Pittsburgh, two hours might be enough. I spent two hours but would have spent more time if I had it. As others advised, it will depend on your level of interest.
