Pittsburgh has so many incredible museum experiences to choose from, and wintertime is the perfect opportunity to explore.

But there are so many more unique museums to try out.
With its free admission and decades worth of all things bicycle and other memorabilia, Bicycle Heaven can’t be missed. And for those who love architecture, visit the Nationality Rooms, where you can tour classrooms from around the world within the gorgeous Cathedral of Learning.
