It's is a interesting museum. The ticket is associate with the Museum of Natural History. So, we you are planing to go there, divide your available time for. In my case, I used about 2 hours to see the Natural history and expand maybe one hour on this one.

Definitely check out this Museum of Art the next time you're in town. The current exhibit, "She Who Tells A Story", was amazing and very powerful.

This museum is nice. There are some very nice works of art here. There is a very large Monet Water Lilies painting and some other beautiful works. A nice collection of Teenie Harris photographs too. There is a fairly big collection of modern art as well. I have to admit though, we just laughed at some of the pieces here.... More

There were a lot of variety of paintings, sculptures, media of art on display. We didn't get to enjoy it as much as we would have liked because our toddler was hungry and tired.

We came for pieces in the Impressionist collection, were not disappointed. Good all round collection. Also, the added advantage of having a Natural History Museum connected so you can show the kids the dinosaurs.

Andrew Carnegie did some great things for Pittsburgh in building libraries and this world-class museum (although, he wasn't too nice to the laborers in the steel mills). Such a great collection of fine artwork!

All on one floor. Very new building with airy feel. Full range of art from classic to weird modern. Worth a two hour visit, if you like art. Parking lot in the back makes it easy to get into the building. It's not the MET or MOMA but still very nice.
