Summer 2018 - Day 84: Heinz History Center
There's nothing quite like a big city. Okay, maybe not like a HUGE city like what we experienced with Atlanta and Houston, but Pittsburgh is certainly much larger than the locations we typically park the RV and drive around. We had to circle quite a few times, looking at parking lots that were seemingly off limits. Man, where do people park around here?
Finally we found a parking garage that had the steepest entrance I've ever seen for a garage. He had to get our ticket on an incline and then power up the rest of the way.

Senator John Heinz was a U.S. senator from 1976 until his death in 1991.
Inside the museum you can have a look at some interesting vehicles related to Pittsburgh.

First in the museum we checked out the history of the Heinz company.
From the Heinz exhibit over to the fourth floor to see the Mister Rogers Neighborhood exhibit.
Fred Rogers would also take off his suit jacket and put on a comfy sweater, a green one of which is on display here.
Along with Mister Rogers are some of the citizens of the Land of Make Believe, including King Friday XII and his subjects.

That was our experience at the Heinz History Museum. Had the privilege of learning more about Pittsburgh's history and also about Mister Rodgers Neighborhood as well.
