  • Plan your itinerary by reviewing the Building List. Note: buildings may be open 10 am – 4 pm, 10 am to 1 pm OR 1 pm to 4 pm. Times listed on each building.
  • Check-in NOT required at our Event Center—instead, start your adventure at any building you decide.
  • Visit every building on your itinerary and stop into others along the way!
  • Volunteers will be on-hand at the entrance of each building to greet you, check for tickets and welcome you inside.

Some buildings may require a mask for entry regardless of vaccination status, so please have a mask with you at all times.  Additionally, proof of vaccination and photo ID are required for entry into select buildings that are owned and presented by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.  These buildings are highlighted in yellow on the Building List.
