The Mattress Factory is a museum of contemporary art that exhibits room-sized works called installations. Created on site by artists from across the country and around the world, their unique exhibitions feature a variety of media that engage all of the senses. The Museum’s unusual galleries are located in two creatively reused buildings on Pittsburgh’s historic North Side. Both buildings house a growing-and distinctive- permanent collection, featuring artists James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama, Winifred Lutz and Rolf Julius, as well as innovative exhibitions that change throughout the year.
The Mattress Factory is a unique space perfect for private events . The museum’s open, industrial interior can be decorated to fit any occasion. The facilities at 500 Sampsonia Way include access to The Garden, lobby, café, and galleries. Special events held at the Mattress Factory may be scheduled during times when the museum is closed to the public.
Available hours are as follows:
Sunday: 8AM-12PM and from 6PM-11PM
