Old City Firehouse Showcase’s Clemente Museum

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — A private museum in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood honors the late Roberto Clemente as a ballplayer, humanitarian and family man.

Professional photographer Duane Rieder developed the museum at the old Engine House 25 building on Penn Avenue.

“I began acquiring photos and other memorabilia after helping the Clemente family save their own photographs of the late ballplayer,” Rieder says.

The collection was first displayed for the family’s All Star Game Party in 2006.

The building also includes Rieder’s winery.

NewsRadio 1020 KDKA’s Barbara Boylan talks with Rieder about his love of all things Clemente.

Museum tours can be scheduled online. Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for children.
