COVID-19: Health and Safety Update

Dear friends,

We have continued to monitor the situation in Allegheny County and, in light of school and non-essential business closures, we have decided to close all four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh (Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History, the Andy Warhol Museum, and the Carnegie Science Center) for an extended period. The museum will be closed and public programs are postponed until further notice.

The health and safety of our community is our top priority. In this moment of change, I am grateful for the collaboration, optimism, and problem solving of the staff here at Carnegie Museum of Art and for your understanding as we navigate these challenging times together.

Although our galleries are temporarily closed, we will continue to share artworks and resources that inspire creativity and tranquility in this tough moment. We have a wealth of digital material you can access from anywhere, from award-winning essays to fascinating videos, and much more.

Thank you for your ongoing support, and feel free to reach out with any questions. We’d also love to hear which artworks and resources you’d like us to feature in our digital channels—feel free to reach out on social media or email us at In the meantime, stay healthy and safe. We can’t wait to welcome you back into the museum when we reopen our doors.

—Eric Crosby, Carnegie Museum of Art’s Henry J. Heinz II Director
