This is a pretty awesome art museum. It's laid out for easy navigation. Explanations are simple and clear. The building itself is as great as the artwork.

A comprehensive collection with a late Van Gogh, an early Mondrian, Cezanne, Monet, Degas, Hopper, three Futurist canvases and a marvelous lacquered wall from the grand salon of the SS Normandie. Pleasant courtyard for coffee or an ice cream.

This is the weakest of the Carnegie Museums. While it has works by Impressionists and other modern artists, all of which are worth seeing, not much truly stands out compared to other major art museums in other cities.

The museum displays were extremely detailed with a fair amount of information about the displays. I loved the dinosaur displays, and the polar and Indian displays, as well. But my absolute favorite was the hall of gems. It is absolutely breathtaking! Astounding!

A wonderful art collection! I love impressionism, and was completely stunned by Monet's Water Lilies (Nymphéas). This was much larger than the Monet paintings I'd seen at the National Gallery of Art in the Smithsonian.
