State budget cuts forced it to close for eight months before operations were taken over by the Heinz History Center in the Strip District. Today, the newly re-opened Fort Pitt Museum has a cleaner, fresher look with life-like figures and recently added artifacts.

Fort Pitt Museum aired on Jun 10, 2010.
