McDonald’s Big Mac is one of the most iconic sandwiches in the world, consisting famously of two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions – on a sesame seed bun.
The origins of the signature sandwich of the world’s most prominent fast food chain trace back to Pittsburgh local franchisee Jim Delligati who first introduced the sandwich in 1967 at a price of 45 cents.
To honor this great moment in world history, the McDonald’s location in North Huntington, located adjacent to the Irwin Exit on the Pennsylvania Turnpike was transformed into the Big Mac Museum and opened in 2007.
Attractions at this odd roadside occasion include a full operating McDonald’s restaurant, a collection of Big Mac memorabilia from around the globe and a statue of the Burger that is just slightly bigger than the real thing…
The whole place is fairly unassuming, other than a sign on the Turnpike promoting the museum as being a McDonald’s Restaurant / Museum, one might pop in expecting the same typical Mickey D’s interior, and, for late night museum fans, this one is open 24 hours a day.
