“Great Venue, but ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

We've been to Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg several times. The space is intimate, the sound is consistently good, and they have a pretty interesting selection of artists. But the balcony is something of a visual disaster, with little raking and large poles that obscure the view of the stage. Whatever you do, sit on the main floor.

“A real gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Lewisburg's Carnegie Hall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.
