The Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh are comprised of four museums. The Carnegie Museum of Art and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History are located in the Carnegie Institute and Library, a stately building included on the National Registry of Historic Places. The Art Museum was designed to hold the ''Old Masters of Tomorrow''. Today, it stays true to its tradition, housing a number of contemporary artworks. A list of its artworks includes works by Winslow Homer and James A. McNeill Whistler. Other ''must-see'' rooms of this museum include the Hall of Sculptures, which is modeled after the Pantheon. The Museum of Natural History has a very different focus, dedicating itself to more biological pursuits. Its treasures include the finest dinosaur collection in the world. Completing the quartet, the Andy Warhol Museum and the Science Center are located in separate facilities on Pittsburgh's North Shore. The Andy Warhol Museum is the largest museum dedicated to a single artist, and the Science Center is known to be the most visited museum in Pittsburgh, housing the latest in technology. Visit one, two or all four of the renowned Carnegie Museums and families will receive a well-rounded education.
