We spent a few hours touring the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Art museum and loved both of them. There are endless exhibits to see and we could visit again. The staff was friendly and overall it's a great place to visit at a low price.

This is a nice medium-sized art museum with a bit of most every art genre, and a few very impressive pieces. I especially liked the Impressionist works, but the modern pieces mostly left me flat. The museum is spaceous and well lighted. Unfortunately when we were there recently several major exhibits had closed and large portions of the museum were closed for hanging new shows. Probably the best part of the museum is that it is co-located with the companion Natural History museum.

Excellent collection spans the centuries and the Continents.Highlights include Impressionist masterpieces and a huge Art Deco Mural from the Normandie.
Modern and Contemporary works are also included.
Decorative artworks,photographs and sculpture are integrated with the paintings in a convincing way.
All works are well displayed and labeled.
Due to a lack of time and to our sorrow we were unable to visit the Decorative Art and Natural Science sections of the Museum

A nice range of art dating from antiquity to the present day. Surprising and interesting number of modern art pieces.

Having lived in NYC I have few expectations about fine arts museums in mid-size towns but this is one of the best museums I've ever been in. The collections are stunning: modern, fine art and at the time we saw 'Roads of Arabia,' a fascinating and compelling look at ancient art from Saudi Arabia.
The fine arts collection is in the same building as the museum of natural history--also surprisingly wonderful!
