I visited during the day time and attended no concert or performance but still enjoyed my time there. It's small but the grounds are beautiful and it doesn't cost anything to see the art on display inside. I recommend visiting even if nothing is going on. It's simply a nice place to tour and take a leisurely stroll.

Went on a Saturday afternoon when there was not anything going on. You go in the basement and they have local artwork on display that can also be purchased. You can then go upstairs and tour at your leisure. Looking forward to visiting when they are having a performance.

My wife and I attended the Dave Mason concert here last night and were pleasantly surprised. Although it is a small venue, the acoustics and atmosphere were outstanding. We had front row seats and were only 15 feet from the band. Very friendly staff and very easy to get in and out. I hope to attend future shows at this... More

One of my favorite venues around. Great sound quality, really stellar acts for a town as small as Lewisburg, all in an absolutely beautiful setting.

We've been to Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg several times. The space is intimate, the sound is consistently good, and they have a pretty interesting selection of artists. But the balcony is something of a visual disaster, with little raking and large poles that obscure the view of the stage. Whatever you do, sit on the main floor.

We attended a concert here recently and had the time of our lives. It was our first visit. Any of you who regularly attend cultural events know how snooty people can be in these settings. There was none of that malarkey at Carnegie Hall. The volunteer who seated us was upbeat, down to earth, and made us feel immediately welcome... More

My family and I visited Carnegie Hall. It is a nice building with different rooms where you can view art that is displayed. You can also look in the auditorium and see the stage and seating area. I liked that the museum is unlocked and since it is free, you can just walk in and see the art work as... More

Absolutely wonderful acts come here. You can see performers for a reasonable price at a very intimate little theater. There are also local exhibitions of artwork and history.

Andrew Carnegie provided the funds for this hall when his niece was attending college in Lewisburg. It is in fantastic condition and in addition to music performances it has 3 art galleries.
