AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Pittsburgh has no shortage of museums, thanks to the philanthropic efforts of this museum's namesake. Andrew Carnegie, the famed 19th century industrialist (1835-1919), wanted to utilize his wealth for benevolent purposes. Visitors to the Carnegie Museum of Art can enjoy classical to turn-of-the-20th-century art; Whistlers, Monets, Renoirs, Cézannes, Klimts and Van Goghs are included in the permanent collection. The museum also collects contemporary art and has a constantly changing series of special exhibitions, lextures and performances. There are several options for dining within the museum, including the self-service Carnegie Café, the Fossil Fuels Café, and the brown bag lunchroom and dining area—perfect if you want to bring in takeaway from one of the myriad restaurants in the neighborhood.
