Rivers of Steel's attractions showcase the artistry and innovation of southwestern Pennsylvania's rich heritage.

Hop on Rivers of Steel's Explorer riverboat for the Uniquely Pittsburgh Sightseeing Tour, a 90-minute sightseeing cruise of Pittsburgh's three rivers that seeks to answer the question “What makes Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh?” This tour shares the big stories of our region’s past—along with many lesser-known tales—as it explores a sense of place.

Looking for an experience unique to the Steel City? Visit the Carrie Blast Furnaces National Historic Landmark. A remnant of the once massive, U.S. Steel Homestead Works, the Carrie Furnaces are also a vestige of Pittsburgh's 20th-century dominance of the steel industry. Guided tours lead guests though the belly of this industrial beast, highlighting the drama of the iron-making process, while sharing the stories of the site's technology, its workers, and their culture.

The Bost Building National Historic Landmark serves at the Visitor’s Center for the Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area. Exhibits highlight the region’s steel heritage and the 1892 Battle of Homestead, along with temporary art and history exhibitions.
