  Carnegie Museum of Art

My favorite traveling exhibit at the Carnegie Art Museum was one of Dr. Seuss, the children's book author. The exhibit traced his emerging style from doodles drawn randomly in student notebooks to cartoons playfully done as he matured into a young man and eventually to the quirky character portrayals from his very popular books.

The museum's permanent exhibits emphasize 19th and 20th century paintings (American, French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist), architecture, sculptures, paintings and European and American decorative arts from the 17th century.

An art shop offers gifts,catalogues, posters, slides and postcards. The Museum of Art cafe is open Tues.-Sat. 10:30 am-3:30 pm for lunch. Fossil Fuels Cafe serves light meals, beverages and gourmet coffees. A lunch room is available during museum hours.

Admission is $10 for adults; $7 for seniors; students/children $6. Admission includes the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Hours are Tues.-Sat. 10 am-5 pm; Sun. 12 pm-5 pm. Closed on Mondays and holidays. A six-level parking garage is located at the intesection of Forbes Avenue and Craig Street and can be used for a fee.
