When the world feels dreary and the headlines bleak, we know which last-minute fun things to do in Pittsburgh promise to raise spirits and bring smiles.

Fun Things to Do in Pittsburgh

Bicycle Heaven

1800 Preble Ave, Chateau

Get lost in the self-proclaimed world’s largest bicycle museum and shop, home to nearly 6,000 bikes, vintage to new, plus an extensive collection of memorabilia and theme bikes, some of which had cameos on the big screen!


4800 Kennywood Blvd, West Mifflin

The beloved amusement park stays true to its roots and keeps things fresh, with additions like 20 all-new Potato Patch®-themed bumper cars. The Bites & Pints food fest brings back chef-inspired tastings of global fare on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, May 24 through June 30.

Museum of Illusions Pittsburgh

267 North Shore Dr, North Side

This hub for creativity brings whimsy to its new North Shore locale. Get stumped inside perspective-changing rooms and enticing installations that beg to be photographed—and bring unexpected laughs, too.

PNC Carousel

4100 Forbes Ave, Oakland

Relive simple childhood joys in Schenley Plaza. Grab a nearby ice cream cone, or a pint enjoyed on The Porch patio for prime people (and dog!) watching.


1501 Arch St, North Side

This color-soaked cultural landmark brightens any day. Feast your eyes on the mesmerizing collection of recycled and repurposed materials that fill a vibrantly eclectic (donation-based) courtyard museum.
