About Us:

The Stephen Foster museum is housed in a 12-sided gothic chamber with stained glass windows designed by Charles Connick that illustrate various Foster songs. On display in the shrine in and around gothic-arched alcoves are exhibits about Foster's life and each of the types of music he composed over the course of his career, including his minstrel songs, civil war music, parlor songs, hymns, and instrumental pieces. In the Center of the room is an exhibit of Pittsburgh during Foster's lifetime. The museum's sound system plays several recordings of Foster's songs, in a variety of styles.
