Pittsburgh's arts scene covers all corners of the city, and the East End (and beyond) has been growing with some pretty incredible performing arts venues, galleries, and more in recent years.
To share these hidden gems, we are excited to partner with the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council for the release of their Pittsburgh Neighborhood Arts Map series, showcasing many staple art venues, art installations, and other hidden gems in and around the city via their website, aptly named Artsburgh!
So in this one, we thought we'd share a bit more about the East Pittsburgh Arts Map and highlight some of our favorite spots you really should check out the next time you head to the East End and beyond!
Find a New Favorite Gallery and Theater East of Pittsburgh
Did you know there are more than two dozen theaters, galleries, and other art installations worth checking out in Pittsburgh's East End?
The interactive map covering the east of Pittsburgh on Artsburgh offers a great way to explore gems such as the following venues and organizations:
- Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall – A stunning memorial hall in the heart of Oakland with an inspiring museum dedicated to our soldiers and sailors.
- The Nationality Rooms at the Cathedral of Learning – Themed classrooms focusing on historical designs from around the world- all period pieces pre-dating the university's founding in 1787.
- The Carnegie Museum of Art and Carnegie Museum of Natural History – Pittsburgh's world-class art and natural history museum, able to be enjoyed on one combination ticket.
- Pittsburgh Glass Center – A premier maker space for all things glass in the East End. Take a class and learn how to work with glass here!

- American Jewish Museum of the JCC of Greater Pittsburgh – A modest museum in Squirrel hill that highlights contemporary Jewish Art and promotes interfaith explorations.

- …and so much more!
While the East Pittsburgh map covers city neighborhoods like Oakland, East Liberty, Squirrel Hill, Regent Square, Point Breeze, Homewood, and more, this one extends out to the nearby city of Greensburg, too!
As our goal here at Discover the Burgh is to help you find the best things to do in the city, we have to admit this new map from the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council does that and more. With maps in Downtown Pittsburgh, North, South, and East of the city, you can find dozens of great places for the arts in minutes!
