  • I am not a Warhol fan by any measure, and yet having worked at thus museum while attending the Art Institute, I feel compelled to stop in and see what has changed. When I visit I am reminded that Warhol was a hack at being an artist, but an amazing business man! He was the original gossiper, he was a name dropper, and created a persona about him that people wanted to have him near only to be part of the next social enema he was going to drop! Being an artist myself, I can say he had no artistic ability, but he was able to print his own money off of nothing more than shock and social anxiety!
  • Great museum with a lot to see about Warhol and his collections and art. It's easy to get to and the parking is right across the street. Spend time reading the cards to understand the impact Warhol had on pop culture.
  • It's honestly ironic that Pittsburgh has The Andy Warhol Museum here. Andy Warhol didn't really like Pittsburgh but nonetheless, this museum is one of the most interesting ones we have. I've been coming to this museum and bringing friends here for years. The exhibits are great and the staff is knowledgable and helpful. The space is also great for events, too, all of which have been well-produced and organized.
  • Pretty expensive. Ok, I guess. They certainly have some variety. I didn't feel tremendous value. One thing that was nice and for me earned the stars above was the screen printing experience. That part was fun. The museum itself- a little dark.
  • This was my sons first trip to the Warhol. We went through all 7 floors and he wanted to do it again. He had the opportunity to make his own print in The Factory with Paul who was so kind and friendly. He had a blast and was happy he was able to bring his own peice of artwork he created on his that he now proudly displays in his room.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
