On our way in, we were approached by one of the guides. Unfortunately weeks later her name escapes me. Happily, she was excellent, with a ready knowledge of the collection and the historical arch that the museum presents in its exhibited works. The impressionists and the contemporary were well presented. There is a combo ticket with the Warhol if you... More

We had only a short time in the art portion of the museum and will try and go back as we barely touched their offerings. The architectural room was a surprise as it featured casts of famouse builings, facads, doors, etc., from around the world..such as Notre Dame in Paris, Parthanon in Athens, and so forth. We had some in... More

On March 23, Point Park University sponsored a Lecture with renowned author Dennis Lehane, in the Music Hall within the Arts Center. What a delightful event this was! The Music Hall was a perfect venue for this type of event; a large stage with a rounded theater of comfortable seats with an intimate atmosphere despite the large crowd. Mr. Lehane... More

The Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie Museum of Art are the same institution in the same building. So everything that I said above about the Museum of Natural History applies here. However, do not fail to observe the frescos, three stories tall, at the edges of the grand staircase. It is some sort of allegory about the... More

I could, and do, spend hours in this museum. The Impressionism and Architecture Galleries are by far my favorite however, the rest of the galleries and exhibitions are great as well. Definitely a great way to spend an afternoon in Pittsburgh!

We were enthralled with our visit to the Carnegie. The art and sculptures that were on view were just breathtaking. The various artists and their works were just so grand to take in and just sit and enjoy the various presentations.

The Carnegie Museum was great! Yes, it's a somewhat small permanent collection, but those items are very much worth seeing. The Van Goghs alone made it worth the hour's drive from Waynesburg to Pittsburgh. Patrons can view works by John Singer Sargent, Claude Monet, Gustav Klimt, Jackson Pollock, Mary Cassatt and too many others to name. But if you see... More

The Carnegie Museum of Art is a must see - located adjacent to the Natural History Museum in Oakland. Large displays on permanent exhibit & temporary exhibits. Beautiful painting, furniture, etc.

This is not the museum to go to if you want to spend days wandering through a huge collection. It is a small collection - but it has some nice stuff in the permanent collection. Also, the temporary exhibits are usually worthwhile. If you have spare time - you can always walk across the hall to the Natural History Museum... More

This was my second time here in five years. Not much had changed at all. You get admission into this museum with the Natural History one. I enjoyed the hall of architecture & sculptures. I took several art history classes in college and was able to identify a lot of the casts of items that they had there. I'm not... More
