The Andy Warhol Museum opened in a renovated industrial warehouse at 117 Sandusky Street on May 13, 1994. The museum, one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh and is a collaborative project of the Carnegie Institute, the Dia Art Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts (AWFVA), is the largest in the United States dedicated to a single artist. It holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives from the Pittsburgh native and pop art icon, Andy Warhol.

The museum is located in an 88,000-square-foot facility that formerly belonged to the Volkwein Music Company and the Frick & Lindsay Company, spread across seven floors with 17 galleries and 900 paintings, close to 2,000 works on paper, over 1,000 published unique prints, 77 sculptures, and 4,000 photographs.
