A beautiful place

I went on a field trip with a school group and enjoyed the presentation and being at this location. It was beautiful and so peaceful.

The chapel is a gem. The windows really sparkled on the sunny morning we visited. The curator put on the organ music (like a player piano for the organ) so we could enjoy the wonderful music in the church. The organ is huge and the music was spectacular. The loft was also open for visitors and it was fun to... More

Heinz Chapel is absolutely gorgeous. The people running it are very knowledgable and friendly. They let you go up the stairs to view the chapel from the balcony. Heinz Chapel is also near the Cathedral of Learning and worth walking the gorgeous path from one to the other.

A perfect follow-up to the Cathedral of Learning & the docent was very helpful & knowledgeable, e.g. recommending a great used bookstore in the area & restaurant.

This is just as beautiful as some of the gothic chapels I have been in Europe. You will just be in awe as you look at all the stain glass and wood carvings. There are some many details it will take you many visits to truly appreciate all the details. This is a must do if you are in Oakland

Brought in a school choir here for a concert where they were the stars. Beautiful chapel in a very beautiful setting. I would definitely recommend a visit. Plenty of other historic places to see right nearby.

A must see while in Pittsburgh. If you are lucky enough to arrive while the organist is practicing you will be in for quite a treat.

Magnificent building on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh used mainly for weddings scheduled by time limitation. A great tourist attraction.

Thanks to the reviews here we decided to visit the chapel in our 1 day visit to Pittsburgh. Luckily our day coincided with the Heinz Chapel Choir Chamber Choir Festival, where 2 selected high school chamber choirs join in the performance. The chapel is a very unique, intimate place for chamber choir, where the voices vibrate and resonate in the... More
