Barbara Tucker, Director of the Carnegie Museums Travel Program, invites you to join Albert D. Kollar, Section Head, Collection Manager, Geologist, and Paleontologist in the Section of Invertebrate Paleontology of Carnegie Museum of Natural History, for a historic architectural outdoors walking tour in celebration of the 125th anniversary of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and the Carnegie Music Hall.

Discover the architectural history of Oakland and our beloved Carnegie buildings on a landmark walking tour with Albert Kollar. In 1895, the placement of the library on an ancient riverbed set the stage for the development of Oakland as Pittsburgh’s premier academic and cultural center. Notable landmarks quickly followed with the establishment of Schenley Park, Phipps Conservatory, and Carnegie Tech, just to name a few. Follow Albert from Carnegie Museum of Art to the Carnegie Library to the Mary Schenley Fountain, where the view of Oakland and its many architectural buildings are on display.
