KERR MEMORIAL MUSEUM 

Museum closed until further notice due to COVID-19

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.

FEATURED EXHIBIT

"Ladies of Liberty"

Extended through spring of 2021

Come celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment at the Kerr Museum. On August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, finally giving women the constitutional right to vote! The women's suffrage movement picked up momentum in the Victorian era and lasted for nearly seventy-two years. This exhibit will honor those brave, strong women with unique displays highlighting many aspects of their fight and final victory; the vote!!

 

Due to COVID-19, the Kerr Museum is temporarily closed. Please check this website to see when the museum is finally open for tours. This special exhibit will be extended well into 2021.
