I visited for the evening to see the holiday displays and lights. This is a large glass conservatory with many rooms decorated in various themes that complemented the different plantings. Walking from room to room, we were treated to colorful lighted displays as well as a wide range of plants including a desert room, tropical room, orchid room, etc. A... More

The Phipps is a venerable Pittsburgh institution which we've been visiting for many years. Several years ago the Phipps underwent extensive renovation, and is much improved. Highlights include holiday exhibits, orchid room, butterfly room and guest international exhibits. Look for the Chihuly glassworks left in the Phipps after a large Chihuly exhibit was integrated with the permanent plantings. Don't miss... More

Took the family including young children. We went to see the Winter Gardens and the lights! Just fabulous, loved every minute as did the kids and the gift shop was great. Recommend for all ages, but be prepared to walk if you are not a big walker :-)

This conservatory is perfect for exploring with friends and family. I went back after several years and took my husband with me. It's so big! They do a great job of putting this place together. The Dale Chihully blow glass looks beautiful amongst the flowers. The Conservatory was getting ready for their Christmas lights in the evening. The photos looked... More

They had started to put up the holiday decorations, but hadn't quite finished. However, there were still plenty of interesting spaces to walk around. Well worth the entrance fee and definitely a place to visit at different times of the year and there's a huge park nearby.

I liked the way they have curated tiny ecosystems in a conservatory. I recommend going here, if only for their outstanding cafe.

I was so amazed by the holiday flower show. The attention to detail was just impeccable. Phipps is always a great place to visit, not just for special shows. It's such a large place with so many rooms. You could spend a ton of time there if you chose to take in all the little things. Each room has a... More
