The Andy Warhol Museum is the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist, Pittsburgh native Andy Warhol (1928-1987). It is a component of the Carnegie Museums Of Pittsburgh.

Born Andrew Warhola, the artist was a leading figure in the pop art movement of the 1950s and 1960s which found inspiration in mass culture. Members of the Warhola family continue to live in and near Pittsburgh.

The Carnegie Museums Of Pittsburgh is the umbrella institution that manages four distinctive museums in the city of Pittsburgh. Their history can be traced to the founding of the Carnegie Museum Of Natural History and the Carnegie Museum Of Art in 1895 through a gift by industrialist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919).

Warhol’s legacy is kept alive and celebrated in a seven-story building constructed in 1911 as the warehouse for a local company that supplied products to regional mills and mines. The renovated facility opened in 1994 to house the artist’s archives and to display his works and those of other daring and creative people. Some of these include performances in the museum’s theater.
