Fort Pitt Museum

On the Trail of History is a series of brief descriptions of PHMC's historic sites and museums.

Experience the saga of the bitter struggle between France and Great Britain for control of North America by visiting the Fort Pitt Museum. Located in a re-created eighteenth century bastion in Pittsburgh’s picturesque Point State Park, the museum features exciting exhibits and conducts a number of living history events each year, including the popular “Colonial Fair at the Point,” which will be held during the weekend of May 6-7, 1995. Other special activities include battle reenactments, crafts demonstrations, and military parades.
