Groups can see two of the most famous Carnegie museums — the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History — located in the same building. Considered by many in the art world to be the first contemporary art museum in the United States, the Carnegie Museum of Art features more than 30,000 objects from the 20th and 21st centuries. Visitors will see painting, sculpture, print, drawings and photographs, as well as a variety of works in video and digital imagery. The adjacent Carnegie Museum of Natural History was founded in 1895 and features 20 exhibition halls full of displays and artifacts. Its most famous exhibit, "Dinosaurs in Their Time," is filled with original fossils of numerous dinosaurs. WHILE YOU'RE THERE: Pittsburgh's geography is defined by the confluence of three rivers, and visitors get a panoramic view of the city by riding the 110-year-old Duquesne Incline up Mount Washington, a hill overlooking downtown. The cable-car system was first built to carry steel workers but now transports visitors to see the rivers, bridges and lights of downtown, surrounded by the Allegheny Mountains.
