Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh
Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh has a fascinating history dating back 116 years. But the story of who they are today—a collection of four dynamic, distinctive museums, and the Pittsburgh region’s home for great art and science exploration—is the real page turner.
The Carnegie Museums of today is a lot different than the Carnegie Museums founded by Pittsburgh industrialist Andrew Carnegie in 1895. But then, Andrew Carnegie would have expected nothing less, since he created his museums to be places of exploration that are constantly changing.
Today, they are a collection of four creative, inspiring, thought-provoking places of exploration: Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum. They educate young people and attract lifetime learners of all ages. They are the largest, most far-reaching cultural organization in the Pittsburgh region, known throughout the world for their vast art and scientific collections and their scientific research. And they are a community leader in educational outreach.
