Great place to drive through, bike or walk through. Highlights some of Pittsburgh's influencial people from the early 1800's to early 1900's. Some huge 40 foot high monuments, mini looking houses with tombs inside. Monuments with Angels, crosses. Well built stone. Felt like we were in Gettysburg

This is a great place for a scenic drive all seasons of the year. There are roads that snake their way through the cemetery and it's fun to wind your way through. You can see a variety of wild life throughout and some of the old tombstones and mausoleums are really neat! We've been known to grab a pizza at... More

Took friends to see the architect. For a cemetery it's beautiful with a lot of history you need to just find your way around. Love the watchtower look out at the entrance.

So glad we went. Beautiful mausoleums, very old ones of interest, unique family plots and even a beautiful pond. Quite a hunt to find Stephen Foster but saw lots of deer and even found a lost dog on the way. Definitely going back!!!

Was seriously debating if I should drive the miles from my home to Allegheny Cemetery. But decided YES after reading a review on Trip Advisor. Was well worth the visit. Amazing things to see and photograph from the past. History galore. I was tethered to my car, which limited me. But it is a very big cemetery. So either biking... More

Peaceful place, over 20 deer, lovely unusual gothic buildings and lovely statuary. It was very cold that day so walking around was less than comfortable but I saw as much as I could. It started to rain so that cut our visit short and we headed back to Ohio. I saw blue jay, ground hog, cardinals and a boat load... More

Beautiful cemetery! The history you see and the love that went into the stones is amazing. It is also in a district that is getting revitalized and will be a great walking/shopping area.

My husband and I decided to take a weekend away from home and visit Pittsburgh for our anniversary. To kill time prior to hotel check in, we found this beautiful old cemetery and decided to visit. It was amazing! Walking around the massive place makes you feel like you've taken a step back in time. So many old military sites,... More

We enjoyed the mausoleums and the deer there. The deer are so friendly and they had baby deer with them. They were filming a movie when we were ther so we didn't get to see it all.

What a great time we had touring this cemetery. There are several military veterans buried here including vets from all of the major wars. We first stopped at the office to obtain a map. The lady at the desk was very helpful. The map is very much needed to find your way around. The grounds are well kept and maintained.... More
