Flowers were gorgeous, the displays were clever. They were setting up a new railroad display and the miniature inclines were cool. There were benches to sit and enjoy the displays. Worth it!

I was a groomsman in a family wedding held in the Outdoor Garden. Combined with a bright sunny day, the sights and sounds of Phipps created a postcard setting for the bride and groom. Additionally, the staff was neat, clean and professional. I'm sure there was much, much more to see at Phipps. I would welcome the opportunity to explore... More

This is one of my favorite places in Pittsburgh. It is always beautiful and relaxing. I buy a membership every year and it is well worth the price. The Christmas display is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! They have a winter garden of lights as well and I highly recommend going at least once. The displays change for every season and they are... More

We visited Phipps this past weekend with our 6 year old. They had a scavenger hunt activity that was perfect for his age. There were many tropical flowers. The orchids were absolutely beautiful. There were also a lot of interactive activities for kids when we visited - make your own candle from bees wax, plant a zinnia, etc. We also... More

I always like to go here for the spring flower show. The massive tulip displays are awesome. Each room has a different theme and color scheme and the photo opportunities are endless.

This was by far the best attraction on my vacation to Pittsburgh. The conservatory consists of several greenhouses connected to a Victorian fern garden. Be sure to visit the new rainforest located at the rear of the complex. They also have an excellent gift shop with some very nice local pottery for sale. Free parking was also a big plus... More

My wife and I go at least four times a year by our selves and always have a meal at the café. Everything is just as we enjoy! At least twice a year we take our grandchildren along to enjoy the flora and fauna and learn about all of the diversity in plants. Our favorite times are the Spring and... More
