I grew up in Pittsburgh but I never had the occasion to visit during before I left town at the age of 20. 36 years later, having moved back to the Pittsburgh Area, my Family and I decided to spend a nice afternoon touring the museum and then having lunch at the Conflict Kitchen in nearby Schenley Plaza.

The Carnegie Art museum is a must see, I especially enjoyed the many sculptures but I also enjoyed an exhibition of Albrecht Durer prints. We did not see the whole museum but we saw enough to want to go back when my 9 year old is occupied by school. It is a peaceful place with a wonderful collection for all tastes.

Parking is also plentiful and relatively inexpensive at 5.00. My wife had purchased a Carnegie Museum pass so I do not recall what the normal admission price is.

This museum is one of the top Art Museums in the contry. I have visited museums in every major city and this one rivals them all.

Admission to the Art Museum also includes admission into the Natural History museum. This museum is lovely, with mostly a collection of modern art. There are some high quality historic pieces from respected artists. I was about to tour both museums in under 2 hours.

By the time I went there, my feet hurt so I'm afraid I did not give it my full attention. More modern art than I usually look at, but it was there so I did. I recommend going in the morning and not after lunch!

This museum is attached to the natural history museum. Don't try to do both on one day as it can be very tiring. This museum has a wide variety of art and is worth a dedicated visit.
