Carnegie Museum of Natural History is ranked among the top five natural history museums in the country and is world famous for its dinosaurs, including the first-ever discovered T. Rex and diplodocus among many others. Through more than 20 galleries and the Powdermill Nature Reserve research field station, the museum maintains, preserves, and interprets an extraordinary collection of 21 million objects and scientific specimens housed within immersive environments. 

Carnegie Museum of Art is arguably the first museum of contemporary art in the United States, collecting the “Old Masters of tomorrow” since the inception of the Carnegie International in 1896. Today, the museum is one of the most dynamic major art institutions in America. Their collection of more than 30,000 objects features a broad spectrum of visual arts, including painting and sculpture; prints and drawings; photographs; architectural casts, renderings, and models; decorative arts and design; and film, video, and digital imagery. Through their programming, exhibitions, and publications, we frequently explore the role of art and artists in confronting key social issues of our time, combining and juxtaposing local and global perspectives. With our unique history and resources, we strive to become a leader in defining the role of art museums for the 21st century. The museum is also home to the largest collection of full-scale architectural casts in North America and the Heinz Architectural Center, one of the largest and most comprehensive architectural interpretation centers in the world. 


wigle whiskey distillery tour

AMERICA'S MOST AWARDED DISTILLERY IS REINVIGORATING THE CRAFT IN ITS BIRTHPLACE.

EXPLORE HISTORY AND DEVELOP A TASTE FOR WHISKEY.

EXPLORE HISTORY AND DEVELOP A TASTE FOR WHISKEY.

American whiskey was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Throughout the 1700 and 1800s, Western Pennsylvania was the epicenter of American Whiskey production. Wigle is named for one of those pioneering Pennsylvania distillers. Wigle was a good-natured man who was sentenced to hang for his unsinkable love of whiskey. In 1794, Phillip Wigle defended his right to distill in a tussle with a tax collector. He unwittingly helped spark the Whiskey Rebellion, which pitted Western Pennsylvania distillers against George Washington's troops.

After the Whiskey Rebellion of the 1790s, Pittsburgh continued to make the country's whiskey. By 1808, Allegheny County was producing half a barrel of whiskey for every man, woman and child living in America. At this time, the gold standard of American whiskey was a spicy, earthy Rye Whiskey called Monongahela Rye. At the height of Whiskey making in Western Pennsylvania, there were 4,000 documented stills. Today, Wigle Whiskey is the only whiskey distillery in the region and was the first distillery in the City of Pittsburgh since Prohibition.

Wigle Whiskey is working to restore a Pennsylvania tradition championed by these rebellious distillers. We make spirits much the same way Wigle and his friends did when Pittsburgh was the center of American Whiskey – with a copper pot and local ingredients. 

Wigle is a family owned and operated lark. The distillery became operational in December of 2011 and opened to the public in March 2012 after two years of lobbying to change the state laws to allow for an on-premise model of craft distillery to exist in Pennsylvania. In 2015, Wigle became the most awarded craft whiskey distillery in the US by the American Craft Spirits Association and won Best Craft Rye Whiskey in America in the same double-blind competition of hundreds of whiskeys from around the country. Wigle devotes an enormous amount of resources to innovation and makes each of its dozens of spirits, including Whiskeys, Gins, Honey Spirits and Bitters, grain-to-bottle from local, organic ingredients. Wigle never, ever purchase spirits from bulk suppliers.
