We came here specifically to see the original sets from Mr. Rogers neighborhood, but were pleasantly surprised by the hands-on children's area on the third floor, and the in-dept exhibit about prohibition currently in the first floor gallery as well.

The Prohibition Exhibit is outstanding. So well done. We loved the Sports museum and the Heinz History. A lovely museum easily done in 2 hours or 6. Whatever works for you. Many interactive items for little ones as well. Great museum!

It is not just a Pittsburgh Sports museum. It is a look back at what built this city from the French and Indian War. Life in early America on the fringe of this country. Industrialism. Prohibition. But more importantly the people and the events that...More

If you don't have a special affiliation to Pittsburgh, two hours might be enough. I spent two hours but would have spent more time if I had it. As others advised, it will depend on your level of interest.
