About Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History
From rock groups to Campbell’s soup, from T. rex to submarine decks—the four Carnegie Museums are home to hundreds of thousands of objects, including some of the world’s great art and the remains of the Earth’s largest prehistoric creatures. They’re home, too, to thousands of exhibition spaces that make us wonder—about our world, the Universe, the past, and the future. Most importantly, they’re the participants and the hosts of daily exploration—onsite, out in the community, and around the world. They are Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum.
