This is the great, old library of Pittsburgh. Book, magazine, and research selections are excellent. The facilities, while older, are kept in good shape, and look like a classic library. There are also some cushy, comfortable chairs for readers. This is a great library for nearby Pitt and CMU universities as the atmosphere is quieter and there is more room to work. Non-Pittsburgh city residents are easily get a library card too.

this is a yearly "must visit" for our family. The architecture in the museum itself is beyond compare and makes me proud to be a Pittsburgher. The artifacts are wonderful and always put my children in awe. Everytime we visit, we find another area that we had not studied closely. Our latest "love" is the Indian area.

Although I remember a time when you could go there for free I would even spend my money to go there. I always use to go here every Sunday after church with my grand mother. It is a great quiet place to sit and enjoy art and reflect. There is also a library connected so that after you walk through the museum you can spend time at the library. It is the main branch of the library so they have tons of things there. It is a great place for grown ups and a great place for kids. I just regret that you have to pay to get in now... but the fee is nominal. Always a great quiet place to spend the afternoon.

When I attended undergraduate school at the University of Pittsburgh, I frequented the Carnegie Library for different research projects. The staff was always very helpful in assisting me in finding books. Also, since it is a public library, all the items are free. The have a user friendly website, in which you can request books be dropped off. I would recommend this library to anyone.

PROS: FREE and Staff
CONS:

The Carnegie science center is a great place for kids. Here they can experience an eathquake, climb aboard a submarine or just play in the children's play area. Don't forget SportsWorks!

I feel like I've stepped back in time when I enter this library. They have two floors with marble stairs. It's enjoyable to read or study because of the surroundings. They do have computers though for research. It's also connected to the Natural History Museum, so you can visit both places without even going outside.

The Carnegie Museum of natural history is truely one of Pittsburgh's treasures. There is so much to do and see make sure you plan a whole day JUST for the natural History part. There are tons of interactive exhibits and always traveling exhibits that are REALLY unique. The bogg people have been there for awhile and this is a must see. They also have a forensic lab for children...my 10 year old loved it!

With multiple locations throughout the Pittsburgh area, the Carnegie Museums are a good way to spend a rainy or boring day. There is the Science Center, the Children's Museum, and the main museum in Oakland near the University of Pittsburgh's campus. If you are a student, you can get in for free. The pricing is reasonable and the exhibits are exciting. They have a cool exhibit every year. Good, inexpensive way to get a little culture.

Such a great bennifit to our city. This library is a book lovers dream. There are so many titles to chose from and the support staff is amazing. They also have computers for public use. They also cary a large selection of periodicals and reference materials. Always nice and quiet with plenty to look at. The structure of this building is historic and wonderful

The Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh would be at the top of my list for anyone visiting Pittsburgh. The museum itself has beautiful architecture and then when you go inside, be prepared to be amazed by amazing art, dinosours, and other exhibits that change. Admission is cheap. They have parking available (although you'll have to pay for it), there is a snack shop and gift shop, and they have programs to get more involved.

PROS: Educational exhibits
CONS: Parking and traffic is sometimes rough
