Andy Warhol Museum

The Andy Warhol Museum is one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, and a collaborative project between the Carnegie Institute, the Dia Art Foundation, and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Plans to house The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Warhol’s birthplace, were announced in 1989, and the Museum opened its doors in May 1994. Originally built in 1911 as a distribution center for products sold to mills and mines, the Warhol Museum was designed by architect Richard Gluckman and features seven floors of gallery and exhibition space.
Founded by Andrew Carnegie in 1895, Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh is a collection of four distinctive museums dedicated to exploration through art and science: Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum.
