Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • You can celebrate what makes Pittsburgh unique at Pennsylvania's largest history museum. Guests can tour the exciting and varied exhibits throughout the day, and all rental revenue directly supports the preservation of the collections.
  • The 1st-floor Great Hall offers a one-of-a-kind backdrop, with vintage vehicles such as a Conestoga wagon, an antique fire engine, a stainless-steel Ford, the Heinz Hitch, and a trolley. There's also a two-story grand staircase, vaulted brick ceiling, and original steel beams.
  • An outdoor deck overlooking the river and the cityscape, part of the 5th-floor Mueller Center, makes a lovely ceremony location. Inside, there's a traditional ballroom with walls of windows, a sound system, and a stage.
