This is located Downtown at "The Point" or Point State Park near The Hilton Hotel. The Point is a gathering place for Pittsburgh celebrations, The Regatta, and has a long history of being settled and fought over. The museum is over the site of Fort Duquesne, which saw action in the French and Indian War, and the British fought for it. They have reconstructed parts of the fort, and built a new museum there--a great day for history buffs, and those wanting to be near the rivers, and sit on the steps that lead to it--to walk around Point State Park, and finally--to see the Point State Park Fountain and the confluence of the three rivers--a must!
By the way--I will tease you--the fountain comes from the underground FOURTH river of Pittsburgh--read up!!
