About Us:

Carnegie Museum of Art is arguably the first museum of contemporary art in the United States, collecting the “Old Masters of tomorrow” since the inception of the Carnegie International in 1896. Today, the museum is one of the most dynamic major art institutions in America. Our collection of more than 35,000 objects features a broad spectrum of visual arts, including painting and sculpture; prints and drawings; photographs; architectural casts, renderings, and models; decorative arts and design; and film, video, and digital imagery. Through our programming, exhibitions, and publications, we frequently explore the role of art and artists in confronting key social issues of our time, combining and juxtaposing local and global perspectives. With our unique history and resources, we strive to become a leader in defining the role of art museums for the 21st century.

One of my favorite places! Great museum, and art gallery together. And a historic library. There is a room with Rodin's sculpture , just one example of great stuff you can see. The architecture hall is amazing. (I mean the life size casts, and large models).

Very nice museum. Something I didn’t realize which I found when we arrived is that admission gets you access to all the museums so well worth the price. We visited kinda late so we only had a chance to visit the art museum, but I hope to return to see the natural history and architectural museum as well.

The Carnegie mueseum is wonderful! For the price of one admission you can go to both the art and the natural history museum. Lots of culturally significant art. A great way to spend the day.

One of a kind! Thoughtfully programmed to create a better user experience. The architecture exhibit is a unique opportunity to better explore the detail and proportions of some of the most iconic works of the ages. They feature changing exhibits too if you're a regular visitor. Something for everyone here.

Definitely worth seeing as the architecture hall is breath-taking! They also have a vast collection of both modern and classical art.
