Overview
More
The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is located just 35 miles east of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the heart of historic Greensburg, tucked amidst the breathtaking Laurel Highlands. The Westmoreland is a regional museum with a national presence. But, it's more than a museum. It's a destination that presents a unique look at American life. Built to inspire and engage, it's a place for people from all corners of the world to gather and experience American art. The Westmoreland's collection includes works by major artists from four centuries. It also captures the region's rich agrarian and industrial past by placing local history within the greater context of our nation. The Museum is home to more than 3,400 objects of fine and decorative American art, including a new collection of post-1950 artwork. And, every work of art has a story to tell. After a dramatic renovation and expansion, The "New" Westmoreland has become a true 21st century museum with increased gallery and education spaces, enhanced community-oriented programming, and an architecturally-dynamic and LEED-certified new wing to feature traveling exhibitions. Visitors to The "New" Westmoreland will build a deeper relationship with the Museum's diverse collection, and develop a deeper appreciation for American art.

Regional art museum with a surprisingly broad collection of American art, from Peale to Homer to Cassatt to Warhol. Plus fascinating temporary exhibit of immigrant photos. Beautiful modern building as well.

Beautiful place and beautiful pieces of art. Sunday’s are free but they do ask you to make a $15 donation which I think is high since they advertise it is free.

We went there one Sunday last month and it was free to get in! It was great considering the price, but had we paid the full ludicrous price ($15 each as I recall?) this would have been a one or two star review.

A great spot to view seldom-seen works by world-famous and regional artists, mostly with connections of some sort to Western Pennsylvania. For instance Mary Cassatt who comes from PA Railroad money. Just received amazing collection of American bronze sculptures. Great landscapes, too, with great strength...More

The building is as ugly as can be! Not much true history let alone paid for art: but, the PR sure begs otherwise! Pretty much typical greensburg and westmoreland county. Fort ligonier has more art than this place!

Staff was extremely helpful. Had Grandkids last time and they really enjoyed the visit. (Ages 7/9/11). Have also been there just to wander around by myself. Permanent and Temporary exhibits are both very interesting. Nice gift shop with some neat things to buy.
