Not much here if you're used to the Louvre, the Met in NYC, or the Art Institute of Chicago. For those who want to see a touch of this and a touch of that, there are small numbers of wonders sprinkled around the museum.

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...More

The museum is difficult to find, even for Pittsburgh. Google maps are fine, but the directions are misleading--its easy to miss the turnoff for the Carnegie Institutes. The layout of art museum is confusing--you feel like you're in the wrong place when you enter the...More
