Providing an intimate experience of
history, heritage, and home.
Experience the warmth and charm of life as it was lived by a small-town doctor. Dr. Thomas R. Kerr, his wife Jessie, and daughter Virginia lived in their gracious home in Oakmont, a quaint town outside of Pittsburgh that provided an escape from the often harsh conditions of life in the city. The museum portrays middle-class family life in the late nineteenth century. This period was marked by the extremes of fabulous wealth and grinding poverty, which overshadowed the emerging middle class.
The Best of Christmas Past
Nov. 18, 2022 Through Jan. 4, 2023
The Kerr Museum is culminating its yearlong
20th Anniversary celebration by highlighting several past Christmas displays.
Visit the Kerr Museum during the
holidays to experience how Victorians celebrated Christmas. The Kerr household
is busy preparing for the festive season by making the plum pudding, hanging the
mistletoe and pine garlands and trimming the Victorian Christmas tree with fairy
lamps, kugels and dresdens. Start a new holiday tradition by celebrating with co-
workers, friends or family at the Kerr Museum.
Open by appointment only.
