My daughter started learning Debussy's First Arabesque (for the piano) in January. Since Debussy lived during the Impressionist era which influenced his compositions, her teacher advised me to take her to the CMOA so she could see for herself some Impressionist paintings. I'm not an...More

The extensive collection of art works from ancient cultures, classical and modern will take you through the centuries. Be prepared to spend at least half a day with a good pair of shoes to view this great collection. Many regional artists as well as some...More

I felt like I was in Europe in the architectural display room. Plaster casts of architectural features, statuary, etc from around the world. Think cathedral doors, arches, columns, statues. The museum was on the smaller side. We visited primarily for the Natural History exhibits.

The museum's Scaife Gallery is home to a noted collection including Van Gogh, Monet, Rodin, Warhol, Pollack, de Kooning etc. The Hall of Sculpture is filled with Greek and Roman reproductions including a scaled-down Parthenon. A couple of great special exhibitions. A must see!

The Carnegie Museum of Art has an extensive collection of art spanning many cultures and years. And if you want to go even further back in time, go to the Natural History Museum next door (same building) to see the dinousaurs.

This was a trip with my college aged daughter who is an artist. The museum is nice, with convenient parking right next to the building. We found the layout to be very confusing though - even with the map. We were never sure if we...More

This is a good place to dip your toes into Art. The museum has a bit of everything. You won't find a room full of works by VanGogh, but the museum does have a VanGogh, a Renoir, a Cassatt, a Monet, a Hockney, a Giacometti,...More

The $20 admission fee, together with the cost of parking, makes this a very pricey attraction. The art section of the museum is interesting but certainly not spectacular... and the day I visited, the temperature was so low in the galleries that I was relieved...More

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.
