“A real gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We attended a concert here recently and had the time of our lives. It was our first visit. Any of you who regularly attend cultural events know how snooty people can be in these settings. There was none of that malarkey at Carnegie Hall. The volunteer who seated us was upbeat, down to earth, and made us feel immediately welcome and at home in the place. The room is small, the seating comfortable, and the atmosphere relaxed. While waiting for the performance to start, we explored the adjacent art gallery. During intermission, there was excellent food and wine to be had, all for a $5.00 donation! Not a typo! Definitely coming back!

“Enjoyable art museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

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.
