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.

FEATURED EXHIBIT

"I'm Bored! What Can I Do?"

January through April, 2022

Visit the Kerr Museum to view how Victorians entertained themselves during the long winter months. Before the radio, television, computer, video game or smart phone, they played with and enjoyed the stereoscope, graphoscope, Victrola and magic lantern. See all of these and more as we take you back in time to a simpler way of life.
