The Fort Pitt Museum, located in historic Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh, is a two-floor, 12,000-square-foot museum that tells the story of Western Pennsylvania's pivotal role during the French & Indian War, the American Revolution, and as the birthplace of Pittsburgh.
The strategic location of the fort – at the Forks of the Ohio River – helped to shape the course of American and world history.
The Fort Pitt Museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Select weekends feature Living History programs that include costumed re-enactors, musket and rifle drills, and cannon firings. See the events listing at the Fort Pitt Museum website for more information and dates.
