“Pittsburgh's museum of weird since 1977”

Part installation art museum, part total mind trip, this off the beaten path museum in a city famous for bigger institutions like Carnegie and Warhol is perhaps Pittsburgh's best kept secret. The Mattress Factory is a museum of contemporary art that presents art you can get into — room-sized environments, created by in-residence artists. Located in the historic Mexican War Streets of Pittsburgh’s North Side since 1977, the Mattress Factory is one of few museums of its kind anywhere. Begin your journey by navigating the catacombs of the outdoor labyrinth, get lost in a mindbending basement full of light trickery, and end up in a room that is half art exhibit, half someone's bedroom.
