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.

The price of admission can be coupled with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History--the two are right beside each other, so plan of spending a good chunk of the day, if not the whole day, in this complex. (As I noted in my review about the Museum of Natural History the Pittsburgh Entertainment book has a 2-for-1 coupon and this... More

But not as big as I expected but I still kept getting lost. The impressionist art was nice, and the modern art exhibit was very original in the layout and design. They had a lot of "private" events going on, and I got the feeling I was not welcome.

Perhaps one of the best deals in Pittsburgh that can be purchased. When you buy a ticket to the art museum you also are able to head into the natural history side which is wicked cool too. Here's the low down on the museum, there is parking (both covered and above ground), there are elevators (lots of beautiful stair cases... More
