Lots of great memorabilia in the smaller museum within the Heinz Collection. Golf section contains several Arnold Palmer items, and a mini golf hole featuring Oakmont's Church Pews. Covers just about everything you can think of from football, hockey, to rowing.

Located inside the equally excellent Heinz History Center, this wonderful museum pays homage to the best of Western PA sports. Covers football and baseball very well, not much for hockey and other local sports but definitely worth seeing for any sports fan.

This was a great place to spend time. Lots of displays covering most sports and sports heroes in the region. It's attached to the John Heinz History Centre so hand in hand it's a great place to spend a few hours.
