This was my second time here in five years. Not much had changed at all. You get admission into this museum with the Natural History one. I enjoyed the hall of architecture & sculptures. I took several art history classes in college and was able to identify a lot of the casts of items that they had there. I'm not... More

I'm from NYC, but did enjoy the environment of the Carnegie of Art. Andy made a nice contribution to his city with a grand building. The place is huge with much to explore (besides the Art Galleries). You could easily send a full day there. Worth the trip if you like Grand museums. (PS- if you are good you will... More

Offers many styles of art like paintings, sculptures, modern, furniture, etc. Admission to the art museum will also get you into the natural history museum. The employees were very friendly and knowledgeable.

There are at least 3 different places art glass is exhibited at the Carnegie Museum; the Tagliapietra is world class, and the Zynsky, Marioni, and Chihuly were impressive as well. The carytids in the sculpture hall are favorite pieces to see, as is the huge Calder mobile, and a large Warhol. There is a carved wood exhibit that is beautiful.... More

All I can say is that they have a very large and impressive impressionist collection. Examples of all the great artist including several of Monet's large works. We really enjoyed our visit.

A gem of an art museum, the Carnegie offers examples of fine impressionist paintings, incl. Monet's water lilies, as well as classical art. There are activities for children, one of the most child-friendly museums in the U. S.

See the dinosaurs next door then go high culture in one of the best art museums outside of New York and Washington DC. You need a good 2-3 hours to do it justice. Has special exhibits and some impressive American Art.

Quite the range or art, many artists and pieces you'll recognize. The visiting collections are also excellent. Great way to spend some hours but coupled with the fact that it's connected to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie (original) Library makes this a great a day visit. Park in the rear and enter through the back (art... More

This is a nice museum. A little too modern for me overall, and not entirely logical as far as layout, but the exhibits are well done.

Just as with the Museum of Natural History attached, this series of art galleries is top-notch. We really enjoyed everything during our tour. Fascinating special exhibit by Duane Michals, very quirky but incredibly original and entertaining. Plan to spend a lot of time if you want to see everything--several hours at a minimum. One excellent gallery after another.
