We chose to have our wedding at Phipps and what an excellent choice! That special day in late March started out with a one hour tour of the gardens that melted away the anxiety of the event and allowed our guests time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings on an early spring day. We were treated with a special... More

Ok we parked by the Cathedral of Learning and took a nice short hike to Phipps Conservatory. The building is very nice and clean. You can smell the food from the Cafe in the lobby and it smelled very good. The cost to see the Phipps Conservatory was $15 each. That took me a minute to digest. I don't know... More

Phipps is a beautiful place to visit . It has room after room of flower displays. The displays are changed regularly and each display has a theme appropriately timed for a season or a holiday . When you look at the displays you can not help but wonder how in the world the workers managed to make them so magical.... More

Phipps Conservatory is a must visit place while in Pittsburgh. The exhibits are all wonderfully put together and the various gardens are all thrilling to walk through. It is a great way to spend some time with the family. You just might learn something, also.

This place is heaven under glass in the winter. This is one of the oldest continuously operating botanical conservatories in the country. They are always changing the displays so you can go several times a year and not see similar flowers/plants. The restaurant is also awesome as it features locavore fair. The gift shop is a great place to Christmas... More

Phipps has a wonderful display of flora from across the world. There are beautifully kept rooms for different environments. Kids can participate in different hands-on activities in spots through out the Conservatory
