Public History & Pittsburgh
Pittburgh gives us a wealth of Public History resources right at our doorstep. The city, its institutions, its professional networks, and its history are some of our best teaching tools.
From the nationally-prominent exhibitions of the Frick Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Smithsonian-Affliate Heinz History Center, to smaller gems like the Museum of Photo Antiquities, the Bayernhof Music Museum, and RandyLand, there are a wide variety of museums and cultural institutions in all corners of the city.
This extensive spectrum of institutions, as well as the thriving private sector downtown and in the surrounding area, explains why Pittsburgh is the ideal place to start your Public History career. Contact us and come see for yourself!
