About Us

There’s no cultural organization in the world quite like Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. With a legacy of discovery and outreach dating back to 1895, today we are a family of four diverse, dynamic museums: Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum. We’re committed to being inclusive, both onsite and online, and to exploring with our audiences the big ideas and issues of our time.

Our mission: To serve as a catalyst and source of growth and knowledge; offer a home to thinking and inquisitive children and adults; act as a collector, guardian, and interactive presenter of cultural and scientific treasures and ideas; and support the community by attracting visitors and promoting economic development.


A lot has happened in 121-plus years! Check out some fascinating highlights from 1895 to today.

Each of the four Carnegie Museums has its own distinct personality and incredible experiences to offer.

As the largest and most far-reaching cultural organization in the Pittsburgh region, each year Carnegie Museums serves more than 1.4 million people, including 400,000 school children.

Our example as a cultural leader and champion of the Pittsburgh region starts at the top.
