The birthplace of famous pop artist Andy Warhol, Pittsburgh has so much to offer to lovers of visual arts. Your first stop should be The Frick which showcases the culture and refinement of the Gilded Age through decorative arts and exhibitions as well as educational programs and concerts to keep you entertained for hours during your visit. The Andy Warhol Museum is the global keeper of Andy Warhol’s legacy and the collection includes 900 paintings, 100 sculptures and almost 2000 works on paper, if you’re a fan of his work (or even just soup) you won’t want to miss this top attraction.

If you’re looking for something a little bit wackier to do during your Pittsburgh holiday, why not check out the Robot Hall of Fame in Carnegie Science Center. The Robot Hall of Fame celebrates important robots that have had an impact on mechanical innovation, and our favourite famous robots who have influenced pop culture across the world. If you’re more into nature, the Center for Postnatural History gives an interesting look at genetically modified organisms, from atomic rodents to genetically modified plants and vegetables, a freaky look at the world around us.

You need to try the famous Primanti Bros sandwiches, a humongous creation topped generously with fries and coleslaw, mmmm!
