Outdoor Activities

Bessemer Court and Transportation Museum

East Carson Street & Smithfield Street Bridge
Pittsburgh, PA 15219
Located along the riverfront, Bessemer Court and Transportation Museum is an outdoor tour of Pittsburgh's industrial heritage. The Bessemer process was a technique brought from England to Pittsburgh by industrialist Andrew Carnegie for the making of steel. As they stroll along the river, visitors can view salvaged pieces of a Bessemer converter. Plaques describe the significance of each piece. The size of the machinery, even though it is in pieces, is amazing. The tour will provide visitors with a unique understanding of the steel industry. Admission is free, but parking is $1.
