I have been to this museum a few times. I am always delighted. The location is (I believe) completely handicap accessible. There are always new exhibitions coming. All of the art is something you have never seen before. Its a great experience and one of my favorite things in Pittsburgh.

I've been here a total of four different times and each time I came was a completely different experience than the last. Very fun to go to and lots of awesome contemporary exhibits that are definitely not boring!
