If there’s one thing that Pittsburgh lacks, it’s sunshine. Us Yinzers are far too familiar with the rain and snow but that’s no excuse to sit at home and binge watch a tv show you’ve seen 100 times. The city has so much to offer for all ages! You could expand your knowledge at a museum, test your skills at an arcade, or sit back, relax and catch a flick at a local movie theater. Whatever it is you’re looking to do, here are the best things to do on a snowy/rainy day in Pittsburgh!
Check Out a Museum
The Heinz History Center is the place to learn about our favorite city! Relive the glory days of western Pennsylvania sports or take a ride in Mister Rogers Neighborhood. Then, check out all things Heinz 57 and take pictures with the giant ketchup displays. There is so much to explore!
Remember when dinosaurs walked the earth? Neither do we. But the Carnegie Museum on Natural History will tell you all about it! Make your way from dinos to African wildlife and take a pit stop at the Hall of Minerals and Gems. There are so many things to do on a snowy/rainy day in Pittsburgh, where do we even begin?
