The Andy Warhol Museum is fantastic.
A big giant loft space, full of pop art. Home to 7 floors of drawings, videos, self-portraits, & more dating back to Warhol’s student days. An archive of ephemera dedicated to documenting the life of the city’s beloved son.
It resides in Andy's hometown Pittsburgh and is the largest museum in the U.S.A dedicated to a single artist. Andy Warhol is iconic in the art world and pop culture, and as his birthplace is Pittsburgh, it's a must-see. The first floor explains the early life of Warhol including his Pittsburgh upbringing. Not only was there artwork to look at, but there were certain rooms where you could interact with the artwork. It was a nice way to break up simply walking around and looking. Each floor was a different chapter for him. You will be amazed how many different types of art he had his hands in.
Maybe not good for children (under 14) There is a lot of "suggestive" material, especially the films.
It also hosts exhibits by visiting artists.
Museum parking is $8 in The Warhol lot. The lot is located on the northeast corner of Sandusky and East General Robinson Streets, and the entrance is on East General Robinson Street. A large Brillo Box parking attendant booth is next to the entrance.
Additional public parking is available north of the museum in the East General Robinson Street parking garage. Prices vary
