There's some nice stuff in here, and some pretty questionable contemporary stuff (in my opinion). However, since admission is included with your ticket to the natural history museum next door, it's worth a ramble through.

I recently visited the Carnegie Museum of Art in the Oakland area while in Pittsburgh, PA and enjoyed it so much I decided to revisit it the next day. The European, Asian, Middle Eastern, and American artwork and artifacts were indeed something to marvel at. As this museum has something for every taste you won't get bored and you may... More

Stunning museum! We particularly enjoyed the modern art. It's in a convenient location near the Phipps Botanical Garden. I liked that I could take photographs in the museum.

Wonderful museum. Only got to spend 1 1/2 here, not realizing how long it would take it get through the history side. (One price for both) would have liked to enjoy the art a bit more! Clean & well lit exhibits. Friendly staff. I will return!

We got there in the afternoon not realizing the size of the museum. This is easily a day trip. We originally wanted to see the museum of art, but it closed before we can see it all. We will definitely be planning in another trip to see the whole thing.

We got this admittance as part of our Carnegie Museum of Natural History and boy were we lucky. I had never been in an art museum like this and it was totally cool and not what I expected at all. Great experience

Admission to the Art Museum also includes admission into the Natural History museum. This museum is lovely, with mostly a collection of modern art. There are some high quality historic pieces from respected artists. I was about to tour both museums in under 2 hours.
