If you haven’t visited the Sen. John Heinz History Center or the Fort Pitt Museum lately, this weekend is a good time to go. Admission to both museums is free Nov. 14, 15 and 16.

The newest exhibitions at the Heinz History Center include “Pittsburgh’s Lost Steamboat: Treasures of the Arabia” on the first floor and Heinz on the fourth floor, as well as the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum  on the second and third floors.

The 12,000-square-foot Fort Pitt Museum focuses on the critical role that Western Pennsylvania played during the French & Indian War, the American Revolution and, of course, the founding of Pittsburgh.

Admission as well as all tours and activities at both museums are courtesy of the Jack Buncher Foundation
