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 before taking in the artwork.

This museum, which is under the same roof as a natural history museum, offers a good sample of art and architecture: (1) there are sample actual-sized models of "classical" and medieval buildings; (2) there is a representative collection of paints: medieval, renaissance, modern; not too much of anyone, but a good example of well known artists (e.g., Degas, Van Gogh, Monet). The one downside is that the admission price may be a deterrent.

The collection here is much larger than we anticipated. We were pleasantly surprised to find 2 Van Gogh's, several impressionists. Many ancient works, glass, modern art - very enjoyable day!

t's tied to the natural history museum so entrance got you into both places. The museum is open on Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun from 10 am—5 pm. he third Sunday of each month is free admission to all. And it is half price on weekdays after 3 pm. There are also ceramics, many paintings, sculptures, things from antiquity, and more. There was Van Gogh and Claude Monet too. The museum isn't huge, but there was still a lot to see. Pleasantly surprised that our ticket to the Natural History Museum next door included admission to the art museum as well.

We hit this museum after the attached natural history museum, and the three of agreed, we should have done this one first. Like all the Carnegie Museums, it's free on Sundays, but expect crowds and bad traffic.

The museum is spacious with enough rooms to get lost in. It is much bigger than it appears at first. While we were there, they had an exhibition of interesting, if not a bit odd, chairs from the 20th century. They also have a lot of architectural-based art that I found interesting. The same went for a bit of homage to Pittsburgh with metal artwork. Areas with local artists stood out, as did an interesting video installation of a Rube Goldberg display, although I gave up watching after about 5 minutes.

It's definitely worth the trip and has a bit of something no matter you artistic preference.
