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.

Beautiful building. Just doing a quick tour of the area and taking a few pictures. If I'm ever back in the area, I'd like to take an actual tour.

Built in 1902, it eas initially a part of the Lewisburg Female Institute, but now serves as a center of the arts for the region. It has a lovely gilded auditorium with a stage that has seen the likes of symphonies, ballet... More
