Inspiring Lifelong Learning

Carnegie Museums inspires, educates, and challenges. Our museums are places of thoughtful, playful discovery—where curious minds explore the most pressing issues of the day. They are guardians of and presenters of art, scientific collections, and ideas.
And they bring to the region experiences only the four Carnegie Museums could deliver.
