The Andy Warhol Museum is located on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, the place of Warhol’s birth and my home town.Although the museum opened in 1996, my husband and I had never been there – until a couple of weeks ago.
I’m not sure if we should have gone sooner, or the time was just right, but we really enjoyed our visit. It was informative, interesting and not at all what I expected. A most pleasant afternoon.

The Warhol claims to be one of the most comprehensive single-artist museums in the world. It features, paintings, works on paper, published prints, sculptures, photographs, films and videotape.
