Explore the best of Pittsburgh in just a day aboard a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Loop around the city to uncover history, architecture, and landmarks, and then enjoy admission to the Carnegie Museums, as well as breathtaking views from the height of Mount Washington on the Duquesne Incline.

Board the bus at any of the stops along the route and set off into the city. The bus begins in Southside and winds its way along the river, up into North Shore, through the bustling Strip District, and then into Oakland, home to the University of Pittsburgh. With 21 stops to choose from, you can explore any number of museums, stadiums, restaurants, shopping centers, and entertainment options. Throughout the day, you're also granted access to 3 of the city's best attractions—the Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and the Duquesne Incline.

Carnegie Museums:
The Carnegie Museum of Art and Carnegie Museum of Natural History—both housed inside the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh—offer a sweeping look through time with interactive exhibits and enthralling displays. Travel back millions of years in the dinosaur gallery, get close to wildlife from across North America and Africa, and marvel at a distinguished collection of contemporary art ranging from paintings and sculpture to film and fashion design.

Duquesne Incline:
Experience the wonders of a vintage railway with a ride on the Duquesne Incline to the height of Mount Washington. Tour the exhibit's restored wooden cable cars dating back to 1877, and soak up spectacular, panoramic views from the upper observation deck. The incline also contains a small museum, where you can see photos of the original train and find information about similar inclines around the world.

  • Duquesne Incline to Mount Washington
  • Carnegie Science Center & Heinz Field
  • Andy Warhol Museum & PNC Park
  • Heinz History Center
  • Strip District
