The Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh are operated by the Carnegie Institute and located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Andy Warhol Museum
Opened on May 15, 1994, the Andy Warhol Museum is the largest museum in the world dedicated to one artist. The museum's collection includes over 4,000 Warhol art works in all media - paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and installation; the entire Andy Warhol Video Collection , 228 four minute Screen Tests , and 45 other films by Warhol; and extensive archives, most notably Warhol's Time Capsules . While dedicated to Andy Warhol, the museum also hosts many exhibits by artists who push the boundries of art, just as Warhol did.
Carnegie Museum of Art
When Andrew Carnegie envisioned a museum collection consisting of the "Old Masters of tomorrow", the Carnegie Museum of Art became, arguably, the first museum of modern art in the United States. Founded in 1895, today it continues Carnegie's love of contemporary art by staging the Carngie International every few years. The marble Hall of Sculpture replicates the interior of the Parthenon. The Hall of Architecture contains the largest collection of plaster casts of architectural masterpieces in America and one of the three largest in the world. The Heinz Architectural Center , opened as part of the museum in 1993, is dedicated to the collection, study, and exhibition of architectural drawings and models.
Carnegie Museum of Natural History
From the discovery of Diplodocus carnegii to the skull of Samson , the most complete Tyrannosaurus rex skull known to date, and the brand new, yet to be named, species of oviraptorosaur the Carnegie Museum of Natural History has one of the finest dinosaur collections in the world. Other exhibits include the Hillman Hall of Minerals and Gems , the Alcoa Foundation Hall of American Indians , , the Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt , the Benedum Hall of Geology and the Powdermill Nature Reserve , established by the museum in 1956 to serve as a field station for long-term studies of natural populations. The museum also recently discovered the Fruitafossor windscheffeli.
Carnegie Science Center
Opened in 1991, but with a history that dates to October 24, 1939, the Carnegie Science Center is the most visited museum in Pittsburgh. Among it's attractions are the Buhl Planetarium , the Rangos Omnimax Theater , the Miniature Railroad & Village ®, and the USS Requin, a World War II submarine.
