Built in a former ice warehouse, the History Center blends industrial history — exhibits tout Heinz ketchup and Pittsburgh’s once-great glass industry — with a pop-culture approach to the past. An adjoining sports museum pays homage to the pros, and to community sports and lesser-known athletes as well. The museum recently overhauled its permanent exhibit to include a section on Pittsburgh innovators and their inventions. Also on display for 2009 is an intimate look at Abraham Lincoln, including the bed he used on a visit to Pittsburgh. Open daily.
