About Us

Welcome to one of Pittsburgh’s most well known landmarks and treasures. Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum is the nation’s only military memorial dedicated to honoring the men and women of all branches of service, from all generations and conflicts. The historic building has stood in honor of our veterans since 1910.   Through personally donated artifacts and mementos, the museum offers a unique look into American military history by telling the stories of the individuals who served our country since the Civil War through today.   Guests also can experience performances in the stately 2300 seat concert auditorium and celebrate in classic style in our elegant ballroom.  Operated and maintained by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, Soldiers & Sailors invites you to be a part of this one of a kind experience and pay tribute to our American heroes. Explore our website for events, programs, our history and how you can support our mission.  Make your plans today to visit Soldiers & Sailors and “Honor them with your Presence”.                            


corner.about-usThe Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) conceived Soldiers & Sailors during the 1890s. It was originally built to recognize the sacrifice, valor and patriotism of the Civil War Veterans of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Today it honors the men and women of Pennsylvania who served the United States in its military endeavors during our country’s history.

Soldiers & Sailors is the nation’s only military memorial dedicated to honoring the men and women of all branches of service, and in all capacities (Active, Reserve, Guard).  Our mission is to preserve a lasting tribute to those men and women who unselfishly gave of themselves in serving their country during American wars.

The American wars and the efforts of the people who fought them profoundly affected the lives of countless individuals both military and civilian. It is our vision to promote the understanding and appreciation of the accomplishments and sacrifice of the service men and women and their community. We must create a greater public awareness of the significance and holdings of the memorial through public relations, community activism and educational outreach programs.

This torch, passed to us by those who came before us and created this memorial is ours to uphold. Soldiers & Sailors will remain a symbol for this great experiment in democracy.
