Being interested in Carnegie, I was interested in seeing this attraction. Unfortunately, I only saw the building and not a show. The building is a fabulous addition to a town as small as Lewisburg. I recommend seeing this just to see how Carnegie donated his wealth.

Couple years ago saw Kathy Mattea there - it was her Good News Christmas tour - amazing - just like her being in your living room - it's small and perfect for intimate shows. She's a WV girl so we were so excited to see her perform.

Lewisburg has one of only four of these concert halls funded by the legendary millionaire. Set in a park setting, his building is beautiful and the performances within a tribute to the arts.

The best place to see a show! You feel like your sitting in the living room sharing an intimate evening with your favorite group. Beautiful place!

Being in Lewisburg, WV I drove to Carnegie Hall in town. It was not open at the time but the grounds were well kept, the building was well kept.........and just beautiful to look at. I noticed there were play bills up in front of the main entrance listing upcoming events, so the facility is certainly used for what was intended.... More

It could be such a cool place... The Bulding itself has much more to offer that it is explored. It´s another case of inadequate administration. A lot of people transit and travel trough the city and there is plenty of art options in that area. So why don´t they capitalize on that? It´s a shame to watch such a historical... More

Great piece of history and culture. A real privilege in this small town. There are amazing plays, live streams from the Met, concerts and a bunch of different art classes throughout the year!

I had the honour of teaching watercolour workshops on my book signing tour of USA here. What a stunning building. What a gorgeous location and what brilliant management of the facilities. Visiting was a sheer pleasure. Highly recommended.
