Beautiful space with great art
Oct 2021
The main entrance is one of the most beautiful spaces I have ever been in. Shows what they were trying to do with a lot of 1970s architecture and failed at. The museum itself has LOTS of wonderful things in it. They even manage to show more than the 3 “usual suspects” for sculpture (Rodin, Brâncuși, and Degas).

High quality art, well curated
Sep 2021
I'm glad we visited, since we enjoyed the art. The museum staff was friendly and helpful in finding specific rooms.

What I didn't enjoy was discovering today that I had been charged twice on my credit card for the tickets I purchased online.

Online, I bought 2 tickets at half price for visiting after 3PM and arrived after 3PM. I gave the receptionist my name and she found my reservation online and handed me two museum tickets. Today, I noticed on my credit card bill that the museum charged my credit card twice for $20 instead of once.

An Art Course in Itself
Jul 2021
These are modern halls with a wide range of art, covering many schools and periods. The Impressionists are well represented.

The Hall of Architecture was a real highlight.
Aug 2021
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to the Carnegie Museum of Art.

The Hall of Architecture was a real highlight. I felt like I had traveled the world by walking through this gallery and seeing the casts from so many regions and periods of history. This is not your typical art museum exhibit.

The Bruce Gallery was also intriguing. I liked seeing the chairs from various eras all within one display. It was also interesting to see the timeline of items like cameras.

I am not a huge fan of contemporary art, so I did not spend much time in the galleries where this was featured. I preferred the galleries featuring Monet, Van Gogh, and others of a similar time period.

Two for the price of one
Jul 2021
You get both the Natural History Museum with its dinosaur skeletons and the art museum. The art section does have a few pieces by big names (Van Gogh, Cezanne, Monet).

Disappointed
Jun 2021
I guess you can say this is a museum of mostly contemporary art. I didn't see any classic art pieces here...no portraits or landscapes. Rooms were set up haphazardly with no apparent flow, and many rooms were empty. I was very bored and done in under a half an hour. This was included in the price of admission to the slightly more enjoyable Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

Very impressive museum. Extensive collection, particularly strong on Impressionist paintings< Monet, Van Gogh, etc. Also many North Italian masters, pre-Renaissance. American painting and decorative art from the 18th and 19 centuries. A must ssee, if you are in Pittsburgh.

A must-see world class art collection!!
Feb 2021
First time back to this museum in over 20 years! We drove in from 5 hours away, so we made sure that we had sufficient time to see everything we wanted to see. We started out with the History of the Carnegie exhibit to learn about Andrew Carnegie and how the museum came to be. We enjoyed the grandness of the Hall of Sculpture from the first floor and enjoyed the individual sculptures as we walked around the balcony. The Hall of Architecture is amazing with its 110-year-old reproductions of ancient and gothic architectural structures. Don't miss the Grand Staircase and the fabulous John Alexander White murals on each level. We also caught the Sourced Locally exhibit and the Heinz Architecture gallery. And then we walked into the Scaife Galleries to see the art collection, arranged chronologically for the most part so you can see the work of the artists in a time period or art style together. Of course, the Monet Water Lilies and the stunning Wheat Fields after the Rain by Van Gogh were highlights as were the Thomas Dewing "Morning Glories" screen, the Tintoretto Allegory pair, works by Ellsworth Kelly, Alex Katz, Jackson Pollock, and even Dan Graham's Heart Pavilion. Truly worth the visit!! Lockers are available to stow coats and bags. To keep guests safe during these COVID times, the CMOA is monitoring number of guests via timed tickets, temperature checks, and requiring masks and social distancing. Thank you for keeping benches in the galleries; with so much to see, and the cafe closed, they are greatly needed when spending more than a couple hours in the galleries. Much appreciated! Kudos to CMOA for allowing food trucks in the parking lot; since their cafe is closed, it was nice to be able to get a bite and a drink as we left the museum.
