Your Health & Safety

On February 25, 2022, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) classified Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Washington, and Westmoreland counties as having low community infection levels. Considering this assessment and additional guidelines by the CDC, masks are optional for visitors to Carnegie Museums. Masks are available on-site if you should need one.

During Summer Camp, campers will be expected to adhere to the public health guidance and Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh procedures in place at the time of their camp. Please visit our summer camp website for more information.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, are experiencing symptoms, or have been exposed to COVID-19, we invite you to explore our virtual offerings including our online collection, digitized Teenie Harris Archive, and YouTube Channel.

If you or a family member have not been vaccinated, please consider taking this important step to protect yourselves and others around you!

We look forward to your visit!

   All visitors are encouraged to reserve a timed ticket

For your safety and comfort, we’re limiting admissions to our museums through timed ticketing so that the number of visitors will never exceed 50% of building capacity at any given time. Members should also reserve their free timed tickets in advance.

  Air Quality

Carnegie Museum of Art has always been concerned about the air quality in our galleries for guest comfort and the care of our collections and exhibits. We regularly monitor our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems to ensure our facility is an environment you can trust. Additional measures include:

  • Increasing the amount of outdoor air introduced into all non-collection areas by 15%, further improving ventilation throughout the building
  • Equipping all air-handling units with filters and pre-filters that exceed the minimum efficiency reporting values (MERV) recommended by ASHRAE*
  • Disinfecting air-handling units once a week using one of two viricides from the EPA’s List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2
  • Cleaning high-touch surfaces including elevators, bathrooms, and handrails every two hours and disinfecting them daily
