My family and I visited Carnegie Hall. It is a nice building with different rooms where you can view art that is displayed. You can also look in the auditorium and see the stage and seating area. I liked that the museum is unlocked and since it is free, you can just walk in and see the art work as you like. We did walk to the office to see which rooms we were allowed to view and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Absolutely wonderful acts come here. You can see performers for a reasonable price at a very intimate little theater. There are also local exhibitions of artwork and history.

Andrew Carnegie provided the funds for this hall when his niece was attending college in Lewisburg. It is in fantastic condition and in addition to music performances it has 3 art galleries.

Oh such memories I have of Carnegie Hall!! As a former student of Greenbrier College and Finishing School I attended many classes and programs in this lovely old building. Carnegie Hall is an lovely Georgian- revival styled building and very much a part of the treasure of the former Greenbrier College and the historic town of Lewisburg. It's wonderful that this building is still being used for productions and concerts!

Bathrooms not accessible and inconvenient. Seats not very comfortable. But....it is a historic venue so it is kinda to be expected. Great venue for such a small town.
