Welcome to Pittsburgh! What do you want to do first? Not sure yet? Well what about plans for tomorrow? …Well you still have time to decide… Where are you staying? You haven't booked a hotel yet?!?!
The Bradford House Historical Associates maintains and operates both the Bradford House Museum and the Whiskey Rebellion Education and Visitor Center. David Bradford, a leader of the 1791-1794 Whiskey Rebellion, built this National Historic Landmark in 1788; now operating as a museum interpreting 18th Century lifestyle. The Whiskey Rebellion Education and Visitor Center is a self-guided, walk-through timeline highlighting the people, places, and events of the Whiskey Rebellion, illustrating its historical significance through information, art, and artifacts. Both sites are located on Main Street, directly across the street from each other. Plan to visit both when you are in town!
The Bradford House Historical Association is thrilled to have re-opened our museum on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. The museum will begin operating at 50% capacity and will eventually accommodate a larger percentage of visitors once permitted. The site will implement new social distancing policies for its visitors and staff while taking extensive measures to ensure all spaces are safe and sanitary, including the frequent and thorough cleaning of high-touch areas and the addition of hand sanitizing stations throughout the museum. We are eager to reopen the Bradford House Museum and we’ll do so with the health and safety of our visitors and staff as our top priority. Some key points: Normal operating hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. The museum will be closed July 4 and subsequent holidays. There is an admission fee of $5 per person to tour the house museum. We accept cash and credit card. Reservations are highly recommended and can be done online via our website. Groups will be limited to 6 or less at a one time. There are waiting areas, such as the outdoor cabin and the gardens. Masks or face coverings will be required until further notice. Docents will also be wearing face coverings/masks. Guests will be entering the front door and exiting the back door, to keep the flow of traffic moving in one direction. We will be providing a clean, sanitized environment for our visitors. The museum’s gardens are in full bloom and a welcome stop while visiting. The docents can explain the medicinal and culinary herbs that are included in the gardens. The Whiskey Rebellion Education & Visitor Center will open later this year! All staff, volunteers and guests will be required to sign an “Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability relating to Coronavirus/Covid-19.” To make a reservation for your tour: You can either call us at 724-222-3604 You can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org You can do advance ticketing online at www.bradfordhouse.org/events We look forward to seeing you!
