Had family in town for the Thanksgiving weekend and took them to Phipps. Just a wonderful day walking and looking at all the displays and beautiful flowers to set the mood for the up and coming holidays.

My daughter and grandson (ages 31 and 5) And I went the Sundsy after Thanksgiving and it was just beautiful! I'd say the orchids are better in the daylight, as a member we come about once a month, but it is spectacular! Great train display! Don't miss this anytime of the year!!

The holiday display is spectacular. Although it was cold during our visit, the outdoor light show is really nice. My wife and I really enjoy every visit.

I went to the conservatory last night with my fiancé to look at their Christmas display, and it was absolutely beautiful. They have the inside decorated for the holidays, but they also have a display outside, and I would use the word 'magical' to describe it. I would definitely recommend for anyone who loves Christmas lights as much as I... More

My wife and I toured the Phipps with our adult son and his lady friend. We had previously seen some of the conservatory the previous year during a family wedding. This time we had time to explore the entire conservatory. Some seasonal holiday displays were ready. We enjoyed the train display that features Pittsburgh sights and a Mr. Rogers displays.... More

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
