Despite the weather being FREEZING, this was a must do for me while in the city. Taking in the History and knowing there would be a great view at the top. Highly recommended and a fun experience.

This was on our list of things to do in Pittsburgh, but it was a little disappointing. Not sure how much excitement we were anticipating, but this was borderline boring. In a historical perspective though, it was well worth the visit.
