  • He is quoted as an important benchmark in the city. I'm personally not very loving of his art, which probably influenced in that the entrance ticket ($20) seems to me too high.

  • 7 floors of all, Andy Warhol, Great art collection and the story of his life in art as well as that of him growing up in Pitt. 
  • We really enjoyed playing with the silver balloons in an interactive museum display, but the paintings and collection of artifacts were less inspiring to the kids. Unfortunately, the museum also does not allow visitors to take photos. I think it would have been fun to capture some photos of all the fun we had in the balloon room. The museum is also many floors high with stairs or the option of the elevator, which was busy and slow going. A better place to visit for adults, than for young children.
  • This is a very large museum that details the entire life of Andy Warhol. After you enter you take an elevator up to the top floor(I want to say seventh) and work your way down through the decades he was active. They have family pictures as well as pictures he made as a child on the top floor. As you progress down you see the different things that moved Andy, from early stages of his career in advertising, to later stages of film and even a floor dedicated to time capsules Andy made(basically he was a hoarder and just packed junk in boxes and gave it to friends). This is the closest you can get to an artist's life that I'm aware of and the museum has everything you could anticipate and more. The soup cans, the portraits of stars, even a few canvases that he took a piss on with friends!
  • I love all things Andy! I am a large LGBT rights advocate, and to see his accomplishments tie in with his diverse sexuality is something that satisfies. I am an advertiser, so this place was cool to see.
  • I fell in love with the museum, and with a guy I met there yesterday. It was love at first sight for sure. Andy Warhol is amazing and inspiration for all the emerging artists and writers like me. I would go back. Hopefully, I can see him again.
  • If you appreciate Andy Warhol at all this is a must. He was a national icon and a Pittsburgh native. So many pieces of his art and history. Great for visitors, even if you aren't overly familiar with Andy's work. You will appreciate it by the time you leave.
