Home of Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History, consider making this historic building the site of your next special event. From gilded halls to contemporary corridors, including: Carnegie Music Hall and its resplendent Music Hall Foyer, arguably the grandest event space in the city; the iconic Hall of Architecture and Hall of Sculpture; Scaife Foyer, a contemporary space ideal for large cocktail receptions; the Foster Overlook to Carnegie’s world-famous dinosaurs; and the stately Founder’s Room, where Andrew Carnegie once greeted his museum visitors. Reserve an entire museum or arrange a private tour and reception for your guests.

From its scenic perch along Pittsburgh’s North Shore, the Science Center doesn’t just peruse the mysteries of the universe—it offers unmatched views of Pittsburgh’s famous skyline and rivers, with plenty of convenient parking, lively exhibits, and cool ideas for truly original events. And coming in 2018: Pointview Hall, the fourth floor of the Science Center’s new Science Pavilion, now under construction. This window-lined, xx-square-foot modern event space will feature spectacular views of Pittsburgh’s Point State Park.

Why not give your next function a truly hip feel? There’s no more intriguing or distinctive space in Pittsburgh—the definitive home of the art and Pop sensibility of native-son Andy Warhol. The museum’s bold, bright lobby holds 100 seated guests and 400 for cocktails. Invite your guests to mingle with celebrities on a custom tour; or rent the entire museum for an evening. You can also host business meetings, lectures, or symposiums in the museum’s state-of-the-art film and video theater.

Make your wedding day truly memorable by celebrating it at one of the distinctively special Carnegie Museums. Our events and catering teams will work with you to create just the right atmosphere in just the right space, large or small.
