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

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.
