Over the years, individuals, organizations, and governments have donated objects to the Nationality Rooms. These range from documents of historic significance to curiosities that bear more sentimental value. When possible, these are displayed within the rooms themselves, but the staff oversee a significant collection of artifacts that are rarely seen in person. The list below allows one to experience virtually the numerous objects that help to tell the story of the origins of Pittsburgh's residents.
Artifacts of the Nationality Rooms
The Nationality Rooms are not generally accessible when classes are not in session or on days when tours are not offered, such as inter-term breaks or holidays. Furthermore, no self-guided tours of the Nationality Rooms are currently offered. In-person tours of the Nationality Rooms require advance registration at least three days in advance. The registration form can be found under the Tours menu. Tours times vary daily and can be found on the tour registration form. Tour guests are strongly encouraged to wear masks in the interest of promoting healthy community use of common and classroom areas.
There will be no tours offered on Monday, May 30 or Monday, July 4.
