Didn’t have a chance to visit the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History this summer? Gather your family and take a fall field trip instead! UPMC Health Plan is excited to support FREE public admission* on Thursdays in September!

While visiting the museums, you can view amazing wildlife frozen in time within life-size dioramas, revel at the rare precious stones inside the Hillman Hall of Minerals and Gems, enjoy beautiful works of art by world-renowned classical and modern artists, dig for dinosaur bones at Bone Hunter’s Quarry, and much more.
