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!

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.

At first I was impress by the architectural collection but the reproductions are not always in good conditions. The painting collection is eclectic. Some pieces are very impressive. Some modern art is borderline joke. Very nice neighbourhood to grab something to drink after a long visit. Definitely most do. Very friendly staff.

They have a huge modern art collection on display. We also enjoyed all the renaissance artists and john constable similar art work. Our favorite section was the architecture displays. It's an...

I am a member of the CArnegie Museums beacuse I can choose to linger among the impressionists or experience something new and unexpected. Never disappointed, form the entrance to the exit, with a little lunch in between.

Beautiful open museum. Interesting modern exhibits and some familiar and less familiar masters. Good value if your hotel has a deal. Lacks a cafe at present.
