The Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh has received $1 million from the Carnegie Corporation of New York to upgrade the technology infrastructure of the museums, museum officials announced Wednesday.

The grant will upgrade switches and routers that prevent the use of high-speed technologies in the galleries and will increase bandwidth for more diverse text, images and video.

The corporation made the grant in honor of its 100th anniversary and to help organizations founded by its namesake, Pittsburgh steel magnate Andrew Carnegie.
