The Bayernhof Museum
I believe it is possible that Pittsburgh has a greater percentage of eccentric millionaires than any other city. The Bayernhof Museum is a perfect example. In the middle of a suburban neighborhood, it was built by Charles Brown III, and features hundreds of automated music machines, secret passages, an underground dungeon, an observatory, and a swimming pool with a waterfall. If you like mechanical music machines, this is the finest collection that I've ever seen. If you want to go, call first -- reservations are required. But it's only $10.
