    As anyone knows planning for and having a wedding can be a daunting task. When looking for venues my son and our new daughter-in-law decided that they wanted a place that was beautiful, elegant and grand. After looking at other places they decide to have their wedding at the Carnegie Museum. The venue was absolutely perfect and the staff was exceptional. The Carnegie provided us with an outstanding event planner, Tori. She helped us to coordinate and schedule as well as providing us with important information regarding the museum and the general plan of how events worked best in the both The Hall of Sculpture and the Banquet Hall. She also was able to helped us implement the ideas that the bride and groom felt were important for their specific celebration. Tori is talented, knowledgeable, hard-working and very personable. She helped us from the very first meeting until the very end of a very beautiful wedding. In addition, the Culinaire caterers and Cassie provided us with a great deal of assistance in selecting delicious meals and gave our guests outstanding service throughout the evening. Cassie was always there to answer our questions and to carrying out the ideas we had to make our guests have a wonderful dinner. I would recommend the Carnegie Museum as the best venue for a lovely and memorable wedding.

    We had the perfect wedding here. The room was spectacular and the guest could not stop talking about it. It was really awesome that the guests were able to tour the museum while we took photos. I also loved having the everyone watch our first dance from the upper level. The Founder's Room was great to get ready in. My bridal party loved that. The staff was very responsive and polite. I am very delighted with our choice.

    The Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh being world class in the arts and history also is a world class venue for a beautiful and opulent wedding, corporate function, parties, etc. The staircase at the museum and the hall of sculpture are truly remarkable in their beauty and lavish atmosphere. Eileen the coordinator is truly professional and courteous as one would expect from such a spectacular venue. We just photographed an event at The Carnegie Music Hall which is part of the Carnegie Museum; we noticed that everything was highly professional and suited for the guests. It truly was a wonderful day in a world class venue. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.

    There is just not much needed to be said about the Carnegie and their staff. It's an amazing place, like no other in Pittsburgh to hold a wedding. For a vendor, they are so helpful and realize that we both are working towards the same end...creating a one of a kind evening for the married couple and guests. Believe it or not, so often venues are so hard to work with. But not Eileen and her staff.
