125 Years: A History in Objects

Andy Warhol’s dental molds and a shot of homemade lightning. And the dinosaur and the painting that started it all. To celebrate 125 years of Carnegie Museums, Carnegie magazine published the stories of 125 iconic, quirky, and sometimes little-known pieces of museum history—25 objects at a time throughout our anniversary year. Explore the tales of these unique wonders of art, science, and the natural world, as well as a few other unforgettable markers of Carnegie Museums past and present—randomly, by museum, or by object type.
