We enjoyed our trip to the museum. There is a great variety of styles of art represented. I was there mostly for the photography. It is esay to get to and parking is very close. The cost is resonable.

A large selection of the Carnegie and Mellon family collections of fine arts and natural history finds. For example, there is a room full of what must be ten of thousands of butterflies. The art collection is eclectic. This is clearly a private collection reflecting the tastes of the family. There is a respectable selection of pre-19th century works. But... More

When my family visited, the first floor was closed for construction, which I believe was the sculpture room, so I can only review part of the museum. Even with only one floor being open we loved it. It's not particularly big but I enjoyed that about it. You could look at some great pieces of art without being overwhelmed by... More

The Carnegie Museum of Art and History are listed separately and are the same. The 2 reviews need merged together. It's a 10 star attraction. With good community standards,

Plainly stated, there is just too much to see in one afternoon. This is a place that needs more than one visit. I would have loved to see a little every day. Not living in PA kind of prevents that. There is a Jimmy Hendrix exhibit with hammocks that my 20 year old loved. I was awed by an Italian... More

There are so many paintings to view by well known artists that to see them in person the beauty of them can be really taken in by the viewer. Outstanding!

Great museum and very educational. It is one of the highlights of my trip to Pittsburgh each time. It is good for families as well and has excellent programs.

The art museum has a nice collection of art from a wide range of time periods and styles. Starting with baroque and renaissance and moving on to impressionists and American realists to modern and contemporary, you get a sense of how art has changed over the centuries.
