“Beautiful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very peaceful and something for everyone to see and experience. Would love to have or attend a special event there as I'm sure it would be very unique.

“Beautiful Conservatory!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Phipps Conservatory was a beautiful attraction. Loved the many different gardens. One of my favorites was the cacti room. I also loved the artwork displayed throughout, esp. the Chihuly glass sculptures. Although I was not there with a small child I loved the children's area, very interactive.

“Christmas at Phipps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

My wife found out some information about an event they were having here. It was very impressive! My wife was in awe over how pretty everything was; the building and flowers were. When the holidays arrive again, I plan to take her again!

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is a lovely and quite large conservatory in Schenley Park. They have many interesting varieties of gardens including the typical tropical as well as an India Garden and butterfly garden. My favorite was the desert garden with some huge succulents. They also had a nice collection of Bonsai and an outdoor garden for kids. The conservatory is in the large Schenley Park, near U Pitt and CMU, it is a great location to just hang out or maybe bring a picnic lunch. Nice place!
