Get your skate on inside the Carnegie Museum of Art
Grab your ice skates and get to the Carnegie Museum of Art in Oakland on Dec. 1.
Yes, you heard that correctly.
The facility is installing a synthetic ice-skating rink in the Hall of Sculpture for the Carnegie Museum of Art on Ice Winter Party. If you don't own skates there will be free rentals available.
The slick, plastic surface works with normal ice skates — no water or freezing temperatures needed. The museum galleries with be open throughout the evening from 6 to 9 p.m. with special holiday-themed tours. The museum's annual Neapolitan presepio, a display of life-like figures and colorful details that recreate the Nativity within an 18th century Italian village life, and annual Holiday Trees will be on view in the Hall of Architecture.
Guests can taste Great Lakes Brewing Company beers as well as grab a sweet treat from one of the biggest cookie tables Pittsburgh has ever seen. They also can do screen printing with Artist Image Resource or cast plaster ornaments in the newest architecture exhibition.
You will be welcome to take holiday card photos in front of reproductions of the museum's famous paintings and dance to tunes from the 1990s and 2000s, as well as holiday hits, with DJ Scottro from 96.1 KISS.
On Dec. 2, the museum store hosts it Holiday Open House. The store will offer live music and free gift wrapping. The ice rink will be available that day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Skate rental will be $5.
Tickets for the ice skating party are $25, by Nov. 17, $35 after that date
