A nice collection of art!

Our local friend wished to go and we were most happy to accommodate her. Though she's in her mid 80s, we had to keep up with her! It's not the Louvre, but that's all the way in... read more

Our local friend wished to go and we were most happy to accommodate her. Though she's in her mid 80s, we had to keep up with her! It's not the Louvre, but that's all the way in Paris! However, for a medium sized city like Pittsburgh, it's a nice collection with art and photography from both local and international artists,... More

Always enjoy walking through the galleries with new exhibits frequently showing. Love this place and if you can visit during the Carnegie International, you'll have a special treat. Its right next to the Museum of Natural History so its great for the kids, too.

Museum had a lot to see. If you buy admission to the history museum the art admission is included. Some of the art was very interesting, even if I didn't understand it.

Nice artefacts in a nice environment. It has one of the most extensive dinosaur exhibits in the world. Although maps are provided, it can get confusing at times to get around the place.

Did you know that if you come after 3:00 to visit either or both museums, it's half price!? Completely worth it, by this time in the day, all the families are gone! We were lucky enough to see three original Van Gogh paintings. Wonderful museum with knowledgable staff!

‘Strong temporary exhibits’ Not possible to get lost in the museum. Pittsburgh history mural beautifully decorates the main staircase. The visitor comments for the new exhibit, ‘She Who Tells a Story’ were much more thoughtful than the visitor comments at most museums. Definitely worth it to visit just for the “She Who Tells a Story” exhibit. You should also visit... More

When you visit the Carnegie Museum both the Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History are in the same building. So you can se both in one trip and stay the day. The Art museum has a couple of halls with paintings and sculptures over the centuries as well as an exhibit that changes every once and awhile.... More

This was a nice art museum with more in it than I first thought. She Who Tells a Story was one of the first photo exhibits I have ever liked. The story it told was shocking. Liked the other art also. Did not leave enough time to see all of this. Be sure to save 8 hours to see the... More

This is a beautiful museum with a lot of beautiful exhibits. We went at Christmas time and it was beautifully decorated. Wonderful rooms and rooms of fine art. You could come here time after time and always see something new. A great way to spend a couple of hours or an afternoon, especially if you purchase the annual pass!
