I've never expected to see this fantastic building , is a very nice surprise and beatifull. Very comfortable place to visit.
I was a tour hostess at the Nationality Rooms. Each room has a theme that predates the US Constitution, as to keep politics out of the rooms. Literally millions of dollars are spent to bring out the best of each culture, and there are one of a kind artifacts in each. You can take the tour for free, or with... More
This is one of those hidden gems that few people know about. As far as I could tell, I was the only person walking through at the time. I highly recommend a stop here. First of all, it's free other than parking. Second, each room is so unique! I went during a time when classes were taking place so I... More
Go check this out! So very cool. They give you a key, a map, a recorded tour, and let you set your own pace. If I lived in the area, I'd frequent this place -it's that neat.
I had no idea what to expect at the Cathedral of Learning Nationality Rooms. I didn't know that each room's architecture and craftsmanship represented its respective country!!

Some of them seemed so reductive as to be stereotypes. For example, African history and cultural cannot be distilled into one room and do justice to the many countries and traditions... More

Lots of entertainment viewing the Nationality Rooms at the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh ... they were decorated very nicely for the Christmas season ... and it is all free
I wish we would have planned more time for this. The rooms are so beautiful this should take 2-3 hours. Each room is unique and decorated to country of origin. Many are used as small lecture halls so check times and go when you can see all of them! Gorgeous building!
