Our trip to the Roberto Clemente Museum was very special. An appointment is required to visit, but it was easy to set up and well worth the effort. The founder Duane, who leads the tours, lights up when telling stories of about Clemente and the acquisition of pieces in the collection. Even if you are not a baseball enthusiast (and... More

I had the privilege of visiting the Clemente Museum thanks to a friend's holiday party. I'm a baseball fan and not a Pittsburgh resident, so I was pretty excited to experience this museum. The museum is chock-full of artifacts of Roberto Clemente, the Clemente family, Pirates, baseball in general, and Pittsburgh athletes, in that order. The vast majority is Clemente-related,... More

Beautiful, educational, excellent tour! If you are a baseball fan, this is a Must while at Pittsburgh. This is a guided tour only museum, and therefore, it is only available through a reservation. We were able to get a space a week in advance, because of a cancellation. However, recommend you book it as early as possible. They reserve up... More

My wife and I are baseball fans. We read in the paper that the Clemente Museum would be open on Mother's Day and Moms would be admitted free. We drove to Pittsburgh and arrived at the Museum to find several other people waiting in line for the opening that did not come. Phone calls to the Museum number only gave... More

Almost every Baseball aficionado is familiar with Roberto Clemente. This museum chronicles his life, from a poor kid growing up in Puerto Rico to that fateful flight back where his life was taken in an airplane crash while trying to give relief to his homeland. Besides being an outstanding & legendary baseball player, that's what kind of person he was..... More

After 2 prior tries, this time we were able to get tickets, and it was worth the wait. The museum is located in a former fire house, a wonderful setting to display all of the Clemente memorabilia.

Located in the charming Lawrenceville neighborhood, The Clemente Musuem in Engine Company 25 is a great multi-purpose destination during a Pittsburgh visit. You don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy it, as Clemente was a Wilkinsburg, PA resident and impressive humanitarian who died in 1972. However, for locals you can even book the museum for weddings and receptions.... More
