A salute to Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum

by
Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum

It’s easy to drive by Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum, marvel for a moment at its striking, classical architecture and move along down busy Fifth Avenue in Oakland. But as one of Pittsburgh’s more under-the-radar attractions, it’s worth a stop sometime.

Originally meant to honor Allegheny County’s Civil War veterans, the facility opened in 1910. It’s one of the few memorials in the country dedicated to personnel from all military branches and is filled with artifacts from the Civil War through recent conflicts in the Middle East.

See upcoming events here, including Pittsburgh Opera’s “Glory Denied.”
