There will be five floors of fun, football-related activities, including:

• A mini-NFL combine that will test kids' speed in the 40-yard dash, assess their accuracy passing a football and challenge their agility in a series of quick-hitting drills.

• Instruction from Mike Logan, former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back and member of the Super Bowl XL team.

• Agility and quickness drills led by Jamal Woodson, Oakland Catholic and SLAAM coach.

• Passing drills led by Chris Edmonds from the Athletic Trauma Unit.

• Activities with Let's Move! Pittsburgh.

• A touchdown contest where young visitors can do their best Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster impression and show off their celebration moves.

The event also will feature healthy cooking demonstrations in the museum's Weisbrod Kitchen Classroom with chef Chris Cox from Café Phipps at Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and Nick Fischer from Fischer Nutrition.

As part of the event, admission to the museum is free for children age 17 and under. Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and $6.50 for students.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
