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.

Bathrooms not accessible and inconvenient. Seats not very comfortable. But....it is a historic venue so it is kinda to be expected. Great venue for such a small town.

Carnegie Hall is just another treasure that makes downtown Lewisburg so special. It is a beautiful old building lovingly cared for and it's worth the visit just to see that alone.

Carnegie has a wonderul season of shows for people of all interests. Great art galleries and fun, free shows on the lawn in the summer. It's located in beautiful Lewisburg, which is home to so much history! Right down the street from Carnegie is the North House, a great, free museum focusing on local history.
