Save yourself the task of toggling through 100 pages to find them. Here's what they had to say about the two museums from Pittsburgh included in the list of 100 Museums to Visit Before You Die,
"The Andy Warhol Museum is the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist. Paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs, and films fill the museum's seven floors and endlessly innovative exhibitions. Their rich collection and archives shed light not only on the Pittsburgh-born pop art icon, but include other influential artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Robert Mapplethorpe. With a room full of silver balloons and excellent cupcakes in the cafe, this museum's fame will far exceed 15 minutes."

"The name is deceiving—the Mattress Factory is less of an industrial establishment, and more of a cultural one. The Factory was founded in 1977 in two refurbished buildings on Pittsburgh's historic North Side and boasts that it "is one of few museums of its kind anywhere." The Mattress Factory is home to a number of room-sized installation works created on site by American as well as international artists. The installations at the Mattress Factory range from a one-story high teddy bear head to room-size architectural projections and fully immersive environments. The nature of the Mattress Factory sets itself apart in its form and specificity. The museum is striving and attempting to activate more than just the audience's sense of sight. Among the museum's diverse programming is a growing permanent collection that includes artists such as James Turrell, Winnifred Lutz, and Yayoi Kusama, among others."
