NEW! Signature Clayton Tour Experience: Gilded, Not Golden


Tuesdays through Sundays
Times vary, 10:15 a.m. through 3:30 p.m.
Duration: 60 minutes
Suggested Ages: Most appropriate for ages 9 and up

Immerse yourself in 1892, a pivotal year for our nation, Pittsburgh, and the Frick family.

Look beneath the “gilded” surface of the late 19th century to reveal the more complicated truths of the era.

Discover Pittsburgh’s influence as an industrial powerhouse through a shared dialogue about the ongoing legacies of the Gilded Age.

The Gilded Age was an era not only of immense wealth and progress, but also rapid industrialization, unprecedented immigration, and labor strife. Explore this pivotal time in our nation’s history at Clayton, the only remaining fully preserved Gilded Age mansion in Pittsburgh. Join your guide and other visitors for a conversational experience that shares the stories of the Frick family and other Pittsburghers, and considers how the legacy of the Gilded Age continues to affect us today.

Content advisory: 1892 was a tumultuous year for the Frick family and the Pittsburgh steel industry. For this reason, tours of Clayton deal with potentially challenging subject matter, including discussions of violence, grief, and child loss.
