Pittsburgh has the privilege of being the world's center of industrialist fortunes which were used to benefit the public including the Carnegie Museum of Art. Well worth the visit.

Timeless pieces that only get better. I can spend hours here! There is so much to see and you must go early to be sure you have time to see as much of it as you can.

Not much here if you're used to the Louvre, the Met in NYC, or the Art Institute of Chicago. For those who want to see a touch of this and a touch of that, there are small numbers of wonders sprinkled around the museum.

Don't miss the Carnegie Museum of Art (located next door to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.) We arrived later in the afternoon and discovered that admission was 1/2 price beginning at 3 p.m. You might want to spend your savings at the Museum cafe...More

There's a garage behind the museum and several pay lots near it. Weekends and free days it fills quickly, so go early!
