The museum was impressive and large, however the exhibits were laid out in the strangest way I'd ever seen. Mixing time frames, art forms, artists, and really anything. We could not grasp a solid flow to it. There were very few exhibits that made sense (asian, 60's, new age) anything else was a bit jumbled to the theme. A nice... More

I spent five hours here, and it was worth every moment. It is physically in the same mammoth building with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. It covers the art of the world, and has quite a number of major masterpieces from different centuries. Clearly, it is one of the great art museums of the United States.

We enjoyed several hours looking at the Impressionist exhibits! What a pure joy to experience Claude Monet's Water Lilies painting without crowds of people! What a wonderful experience to sit and take in the breathtaking brush strokes and colors!

I've visited many museums (Louvre, The Met., Prado, Nat'l Gallery, etc) and I was so impressed with the collection at the Carnegie. The Carnegie holds an important and impressive collection on a much more limited scale than say the Louvre which makes it more manageable, and all set in a great piece of architecture and nicely proportioned galleries. A must... More

It's is a interesting museum. The ticket is associate with the Museum of Natural History. So, we you are planing to go there, divide your available time for. In my case, I used about 2 hours to see the Natural history and expand maybe one hour on this one.

Definitely check out this Museum of Art the next time you're in town. The current exhibit, "She Who Tells A Story", was amazing and very powerful.
