Your Health & Safety

Since the start of COVID-19 pandemic, Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh has continued to follow government and public health guidance to keep staff and visitors safe. Thank you for your continued help and support! Given a growing percentage of vaccinated adults across the state, Pennsylvania has lifted all remaining COVID-19 restrictions. Mask-wearing and social-distancing are no longer required at the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh except for summer camp programs. Unvaccinated visitors are strongly encouraged to wear masks, and visitors experiencing COVID-19 symptoms are kindly asked to remain at home.

We look forward to spending the summer with you at Carnegie Museum of Art!


   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
