This tour is definitely worth doing. The car museum was great and the people there were very helpful and friendly. The home tour was great. It showed old style architecture. Nothing creative like a frank Lloyd wright home but showed how that family showed their massive wealth. All mahogany covered rooms with hand installed aluminum leaf as was paper. Tons of items from Tiffanys. A music box that was huge and had an entire band is instruments in it. Very very interesting. Very low tour fee.

The Heinz History center is a great museum! It's a Pittsburgh staple, even if you're from Pittsburgh, I guarantee you'll find facts about Pittsburgh that you didn't know. There are a total of 6 floors at the museum. They do different special exhibits at different times of the year. At this time they have a Pixburgh exhibit which features a ton of pictures people have gifted to the museum from different times and events in Pittsburgh.
