Oakland Carnegie Museums offering monthly Free Sundays in 2018


Admission to the two museums is free the third Sunday of every month—part of a package of free and discounted admission opportunities at the four Carnegie Museums this year.

Visitors are invited to enjoy Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History for free on the third Sunday of every month in 2018. Carnegie Museums announced the monthly Free Sundays program as part of a series of free and discounted admission opportunities for the year.          

“We look at these new monthly Free Sundays as a kind of open house for the Pittsburgh community,” said Jo Ellen Parker, president and CEO of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. “We’re inviting in new visitors and old friends to experience the great treasures of our Museums of Art and Natural History, to have fun with family and friends, and to get inspired.          

“We’re happy to offer these and other free and discounted opportunities that encourage more visitors to enjoy our diverse, dynamic museums,” Parker added. Other special admission discounts at the four Carnegie Museums this year include:

  • Free Good Fridays at The Andy Warhol Museum this January (from 5-10 p.m.), sponsored by UPMC Health Plan.
  • A free Sunday at Carnegie Science Center on March 25, sponsored by Duquesne Light.
  • Three Spring Break Free Days at the Oakland Carnegie Museums and at The Andy Warhol Museum, coinciding with spring break at Pittsburgh Public Schools (March 28-30), sponsored by The Jack Buncher Foundation.
  • Carnegie Science Center’s annual June Snowball Day, which invites visitors to pay whatever they choose—as long as they bring a preserved snowball with them.
  • Free fall RADical Days as part of the Allegheny Regional Asset District’s annual celebration of the region’s cultural and educational attractions.    
  • Regular discounted admission: half-price admission every weekday after 3 p.m. at the Oakland Museums and every Friday at The Warhol after 5 p.m.
