Lots to see at this museum. My favorite was the Contemporary Art galleries. Good to see works by people other than white guys. AND, it's connected to the Natural History Museum. Amazing place.

The current photography exhibit is worth a visit, very interesting. Now for the paintings, a nice collection of some of the most important artists. From realism to impressionism and what is sadly called art today, the Museum offers sampling of all. Perhaps you will take...More

It's not necessarily cheap but I love being in this museum. The modern art section is to die for and there is a ridiculous amount of more classical art for everyone to enjoy. You also can go to more than just the one museum off...More

Quite often major art museums/galleries can overwhelm the senses but here you can see the work of well known (and lesser known) artists ans sculptors in quantities which allow everything to be taken in.

Never enough time to see everything. Just so much. The panels from the French ocean liner Normandie are very special, but, then again, there are so many special things to see. A must see when visiting Pittsburgh.

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.

We spent a half day going through these galleries. There is an excellent permanent collection, some of the more contemporary works we weren't able to see due to renovations. But what we saw was great. And the Hiroshige Takaido Road special exhibition is terrific through...More
