We were truly surprised by this hidden gem of Pittsburgh. The conservatory was expansive allowing us to have a pleasant time walking through lasting over 2 hours. Spots of particular interest for us were the "Desert Room" and the "Bonsai Garden." We also checked out the café and gift shop. The café had good food and was able to keep a long line of customers moving. Although the gift shop offered some very nice materials, the prices were a bit high to take anything home. I've posted some pictures but be sure to stop by yourself and explore!
