5:30 PM  –  8:30 PM

Join Rivers of Steel Arts at dusk for unique photo safaris that explore the Carrie Furnaces in twilight. Witness the beauty and subtlety of the site as only seen through half light and capture our own piece of the drama to take home. This safari is recommended for those with prior experience shooting low-light subject matter but open to both novice and experienced photographers alike. Attendees can expect an "open" shooting experience with very little interruption, guidance or interference.

By purchasing tickets for a tour or event at Carrie Furnaces, you consent to the terms of our liability waiver which can be found on our website.


  • As a former industrial site, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure an enjoyable visit.

    • What to wear:  The majority of the site is outdoors; please dress for the weather. Additionally, the ground is uneven—sensible shoes are a must. Open-toed shoes and high heels are prohibited. 
    • Restrooms & concessions: The rawness of the site is certainly part of its charm. However, that rawness also limits the creature comforts many of us are accustomed to, like running water. Portable bathrooms, hand washing stations, and hand sanitizer are available. Food amenities are not available (with some exceptions, such as food trucks at festivals).
    • Photography: Photography is permitted. For safety reasons, videography and drones are prohibited.
    • Accessibility: Handicapped parking is available. However, the grounds are uneven and may not be accessible for most wheelchairs. Contact us at for details and options.
    • COVID-19 Policies: Please be advised of our current COVID-19 policies.
    • Liability: By purchasing admission tickets, all visitors consent to the terms of our liability waiver and consent to be photographed (PDF).
    • Admission: Site access is limited to guided tours, workshops, and events. Unless otherwise noted, all admissions are ticketed.
    • Location: The Carrie Blast Furnaces are located in the communities of Swissvale and Rankin in the Monongahela River Valley. The address is 801 Carrie Furnace Blvd., Pittsburgh, PA 15218.
