The views are the technology itself are fascinating, but it's best to combine this attraction with something else or include it en route to something else. You don't really need much time there. There is an exhibit talking about the history of Pittsburgh/the incline on...More

The Monongehela Incline is close to Station Square--also great. Goes to an outdoor viewing platform. The Duquesne Incline has a parking lot at the bottom on West Carson St.
