Overview

The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is located just 35 miles east of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the heart of historic Greensburg, tucked amidst the breathtaking Laurel Highlands. The Westmoreland is a regional museum with a national presence. But, it's more than a museum. It's a destination that presents a unique look at American life. Built to inspire and engage, it's a place for people from all corners of the world to gather and experience American art. The Westmoreland's collection includes works by major artists from four centuries. It also captures the region's rich agrarian and industrial past by placing local history within the greater context of our nation. The Museum is home to more than 3,400 objects of fine and decorative American art, including a new collection of post-1950 artwork. And, every work of art has a story to tell. After a dramatic renovation and expansion, The "New" Westmoreland has become a true 21st century museum with increased gallery and education spaces, enhanced community-oriented programming, and an architecturally-dynamic and LEED-certified new wing to feature traveling exhibitions. Visitors to The "New" Westmoreland will build a deeper relationship with the Museum's diverse collection, and develop a deeper appreciation for American art.

The quality of art in the museum is much more than I expected. They've laid out the rooms in a well-themed fashion. We started in one room that expressed the industrial revolution near Pittsburgh, moved through early American history, through various decades of art and...More

The Westmoreland exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the local art and works related to the area, including those donated by the local aristocracy. There was a small and very well presented display of early and mid 20th century contemporary artists many of whom were familiar...More

The Westmoreland never gets much love. Which is a shame, because the museum is excellent, and while it may be small, it has everything a big city museum does. I just went there with my children, husband and father in law recently. I'd been curious...More
