The Andy Warhol Museum is just across the 7th Street Bridge from downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. The museum features extensive permanent collections of art and archives.

Exhibition prints of all Warhol films and videos will be added to the collection as they are preserved. Also included in the collection are wallpaper and books by Warhol. The collection covers the entire range of Warhol's work from all periods, including 1950s illustrations and sketchbooks; 1960s Pop paintings of consumer products (Campbell's Soup Cans), celebrities (Liz, Jackie, Marilyn, Elvis), Disasters and Electric Chairs; portrait paintings (Mao), Skull paintings and the abstract Oxidations from the 1970s; and works from the 1980s such as The Last Supper, Raphael I-6.99 and collaborative paintings made with younger artists.
