Campus grounds were interesting, but the grafitti was offputting. I was on bike, so I saw a lot in 30 min. If on foot, allow 2 hours...it's a big campus.

Beautiful grounds and outstanding architecture, CMU is definitely worth a visit. Phipps Conservatory, affiliated with the campus, is enough alone to make the trek!

Went here years ago. It was Christmas so no one was around and the buildings were locked. We just strolled around the grounds to see what had changed and what had stayed the same. The weather in Dec 2019 was almost 60 degrees so it was a nice walk through the past. It looks like they're still carrying on the tradition of painting the fence.

We enjoyed walking around and taking in the many things to see especially in the art museum. There seems to be a need for more easily accessible campus maps though.

Went for the Museum of Art and then continued to walk around the attractive grounds. Seems to be a well endowed university with two outstanding museums and a world renowned reputation. Campus itself is easy to navigate, with parking next to the art museum. We enjoyed our visit.
