  • We went there one Sunday last month and it was free to get in! It was great considering the price, but had we paid the full ludicrous price ($15 each as I recall?) this would have been a one or two st...  more »

  • The building is as ugly as can be! Not much true history let alone paid for art: but, the PR sure begs otherwise! Pretty much typical greensburg and westmoreland county. Fort ligonier has more art tha...  more »

  • A beautiful place to observe American art. In 2017 completed an overhaul of the building itself. The building itself belongs in a museum. The building itself I guess that I may be able to call it an art deco style. It is truly an amazing design. This was just an older building with many great works. This is a special place with a great coffee shop inside & a crown jewel of the Westmoreland Trust along with the palace theater & the Train Station. A place to see if you find yourself in Greensburg Pa.
  • I was pleasantly surprised at what this museum contained. I particularly liked the local - historical paintings of things such as the steel mill workers. You'll find various work on display including furniture, statues, textile and there's even a nice play area for children. You won't be disappointed.
  • The museum is most definitely worth your time, there's no doubt about it. The staff - from the customer service desk to the gallery attendants - were all very, very nice. The entirety of the museum's main galleries are on the second floor, the collections ranging from Contemporary, Folk Art, and 19th/20th Century. With lots of delightful and thought provoking pieces (I caught 'The Art of Movement' exhibit and thought it incredible, mind-boggling, and amazing), there is something here for everyone, and everyone will find something here to like. The only issue I had was with the 'Southwestern Pennsylvania' room, as overwhelmingly beautiful as it is, there is simply no way to enjoy art when displayed 20 feet over your head. Allow at least 90-120 minutes to enjoy the museum. There's a very fine gift shop that also has a limited choice of small beverages and snacks, but no other food, so eat before coming. I'm glad I took the time to come here.
  • I love the Westmoreland Museum. I took the day off in part to visit the museum to see the sculpture exhibit. Wonderful and thanks to the donors. What an incredible gift!
  • Family day! Fun was had by all. My grandson loved the changable landscape room.
