Watch the Penguins play hockey at PPG Paints Arena, an indoor arena that is home to a number of sporting and cultural events year-round. This arena, which can host up to 19,000 people, was built in 2010 to replace an older Civic Center that was constructed in 1961. Concerts here have featured Lady Gaga and Paul McCartney, to name a few. It's the place to go to see the National Hockey League's Pittsburgh Penguins play on their home turf. You can also watch arena football's Pittsburgh Power here. To find out how the stadium became LEED Gold Certified, or to learn more about its history, take a guided tour of the facilities, including exclusive suites and some locker rooms.

  • Great venue for sports and entertainment. Great views from all seats and a very open atmosphere. I've seen plenty of hockey games and a few concerts and the sound system is amazing. Have the standard food as well as a few upscale places to get better food. The pulled pork nachos are a big hit for pens games.
  • Great place to see a concert! Easy to get in and out of and easy to navigate around while inside. I suggest getting your drinks from the kiosk vendors rather than going to the Captain Morgan Club bar. The bartenders there are mind bogglingly slow at times. I'm not sure if they are told to slow roll the drinks to keep the crowd under control or not, but sometimes you'd think they weren't making tips.
