Easily accessed by your car rental from Orthodox Auto Company, The Warhol is the perfect destination for the art enthusiast in your family. Consider paying a visit to this museum on your next Pennsylvania vacation.
You might be curious as to why The Andy Warhol Museum is located in Pittsburgh, PA. Though usually associated with the art scene of 1960s New York City, Warhol is a native son of Pittsburgh. Exhibits spanning his entire artistic career, both in and out of Pittsburgh, showcase this art legend’s breadth of work.

Film and Video Collection: An artist in all mediums, Andy’s films and videos are put on display daily for museum patrons’ enjoyment in both the museum’s theater and galleries. Films made by others that encompass or coincide with Andy’s own work are also presented.
