Our Museum

One of the most impressive facts about our extensive museum collection is that every item has been privately donated. 

The Center houses the City of McKeesport's first schoolhouse, previously situated at five other locations. Five additional rooms display varying aspects of McKeesport and the Mon Valley's history, including an Industry Wing with a large scale model of the US Steel National Tube, church collections, and an exhibit honoring Helen Richey. Peruse our nostalgic room of former store and restaurant donations and numerous nostalgic photos and paintings that will always bring to mind fond memories from the area's rich historic past.

Complimentary daily admission.

Call the Center for information on private, guided tours.
