Both the art museum and the natural history side are quite comprehensive. The art side has a lovely selection of works, including antiquities. The natural history side does a wonderful job presenting a wide range of natural history subject matter and has quite an impressive mineral collection. The building itself is beautiful. I also had a lovely lunch while there... More

Not a large museum, but well thought in terms of display and efforts to have a minimum representation of periods, styles, and recognizable-name artists. There was a contemporary collection with the requisite head scratching pieces, and a lovely museum volunteer who approached kids in particular to help them look at the art in a bit more deep way than they...

This museum is attached to the Natural History museum so we spent a great morning wandering from nature to artists some of whom had been interested in nature.

The dinosaur exhibit was fantastic, they have an interactive room for the kids that is phenomenal and it really engages the kids. There is a I spy room that kids look for objects using a flashlight. Overall great experience.

From Monet's "Water Lillies" to gems to dinosaur bones and the original Carnegie Library, Carnegie Museum complex houses artifacts sure to excite young and old alike; plus, there is a cafeteria and restaurant, and all of the Oakland section of Pittsburgh just outside.

My wife and I just spent about four hours in the art museum (and another hour in the natural history museum) before we ran out of gas. Right now the art museum has a special temporary show of prints from their collection, which was outstanding. The texts and panels were extremely well done, as well as explanatory displays on printmaking... More

Parking is the only downside to the museum. I've been going there for over 50 years and I'm still wowed by it. Natural history and art all under the same roof.

I am from Europe and I love visiting museums. I have been to the Louvre, to a bunch of museums in Holland and Austria and other places. This museum is a must see! It has so much in one place that you better have a full day to experience it. Both the Art and the History parts are great!

The museum is very attractive because of its architecture. It is also worth a visit to see impressionists art work such as Monet. It has some more contemporary art too. It links with Carnegie Science Museum. It has a good shop and a restaurant.
