Husband and teenage kids all wimped out and when to the cafeteria while I had the cultural fortitude to visit the art section of the Carnegie museums. I thought it was great. Lots of time periods, varied art.... did text the family a few pictures of nude statues and painting, but still couldn't convince them to join me.

Very nice tour for novice. The guide was knowledgable and very friendly. She went the extra mile when asked questions about the rest of the museum. Her passion for Pittsburgh was apparent.

The Museum is connected to the History Museum, but in its own section. It is not a large facility, but they have a variety of items. There are also a couple hands on sections for the kids. While there is a selection of different times, artists and styles, it did seem to focus more on modern and contemporary pieces. While... More

The Carnegie Museum of Art is one of those places that should not be missed in Pittsburgh. This is a world class art museum with many well-known paintings and sculptures. It is fun finding famous or wonderful images and realize that its home is in Pittsburgh. Truly, the Carnegie Museum makes Pittsburgh Someplace Special.

Pittsburgh is home to some of the best museums in the world! The city is fortunate enough to have the Carnegie Museum of Art. Museum does a great job featuring local artists too in their exhibits.

My husband and I enjoy art but we are not experts. We have visited before and enjoyed our visits. This time we challenged ourselves and went on a tour by a volunteer docent of modern art. It was an intellectually challenging experience. So glad we did it. I don't know if it made us love modern art, but we did... More

One of the most impressive curatorial collections I've had the privilege of viewing within a North American context. Took a day off on a recent business trip to Pittsburgh, and immersed myself in all the Carnegie has to offer: exquisite works of art from Europe and the U.S., spanning impressionists to the contemporary period; beautiful sculptures, both ancient and modern,...

Beautifully displayed art. Quite enjoyable and larger than it seems. Nice that it is attached to history museum so you can visit both at the same time.

A nice Art Museum with a variety of artwork covering multiple time periods. Attached to the Natural History Museum, I felt this portion was a bit overshadowed. This portion was much smaller than its counterpart. I will say if you like Modern or Contemporary Art, there was a large section devoted to that. However, this was space wasted for me.
