Luckily we were in town for the Winter Flower and Light Show, and enjoyed the beauty of the conservatory all decked out for the Christmas season. But we would have enjoyed Phipps even without this yearly show. Each room focuses on a different type of foliage and plant life. And there is a children's Produce Market, with real life, hands...

Decked out for the holidays, with the abundance of color, fragrance, and interesting displays, make this family friendly venue a happy place to be. Loved the train garden, the Congo exhibit, and the Chihuly glass tucked in with nature's abundance.

Since moving to Pittsburgh I have visited Phipps twice. Both times were stunning and different. I got to see and experience something new each time - even if it existed the time before. There is so much to take in. Do yourself a favor and go when you have enough time - I regret that I never get to fully... More

The Conservatory is fantastic. They were setting up the Conservatory for Christmas and the flowers are just gorgeous. The different colours of the poinsettias, the hydrangeas, the orchids and other flowers are just beautiful. Worth the trip to the Conservatory.

If I could propose to my wife again I'd love to do it here. It's so peaceful, inspiring and romantic. All the colors and life makes you feel wonderful. Well it did me, anyway. I'd love to work here. My friend and I had a little time off and this was only a 15 minute drive from our hotel. A... More

We visit several times a year because there is always something new and wonderful to see and in some cases hear.Our favorite seasonal display is the December Holiday with both growing and "glowing" (lights) spectacles to behold. Try to go in both daylight and evening. Both have their own attractions. Oh, and bring a camera...

After brunch we had a few hours before she was due at the airport so we went to Phipps, and we are so glad we did! As it is the Christmas season, Phipps had done a great job of decorating... More
