A budget travel community your mom probably wouldn't find useful.

Well done, Pittsburgh.

The Andy Warhol Museum has one of the most interesting collections of any artist, period. Whether or not you're into Andy Warhol, the Polaroids and television show footage alone document pretty much anything worth your attention in pop culture. Andy interviewing Divine in the 80s? Maybe the best moment on film ever. Seriously, the collection here is so incredible that a couple of years ago, one of the biggest museums in way-avant-garde Amsterdam begged them to borrow maybe 40% of all the stuff and showcased it over the course of two floors.

But it's more than just the most comprehensive look at what was happening in American art for 20 years through Andy Warhol and his band of fierce weirdos. There's always work from someone else, and the museum, like its namesake, is surprisingly forward-thinking and witty when it comes to other exhibitions or special events. Even if you aren't cool enough to "get" Warhol, you'll likely enjoy this museum.
