Phipps is always a pleasure. We went to see the Christmas lights display and walking around inside was just as gorgeous as outside. It was a perfect visit to just stroll through the flora and fauna, take pictures, and enjoy company with friends.

My husband and I go to the Phipps Conservatory at least once a year and it is a place of botanic beauty any time of the year. Plan to spend at least 3 hours to peruse the many flora of the place. Be sure to take pictures of the beauty.

This was our first visit to Pittsburgh and we knew nothing about the conservatory. We were pleasantly surprised how big it was, with several wings and a great variety of plants and flowers. The only negative was that it wasn't cool and we were seeking air conditioning after a hot morning at the zoo.

We spent 3 hours walking through the gardens both inside and out side. The kids were given a list of items to find. There were several play areas for the kids that the enjoyed. There were other activities that we would have partisipated but this was a spare of the moment day trip.

Living in Pittsburgh, the is one of my favorite annual treks. We try to visit at Easter and Christmas. The displays are spectular. Some years the innovative ideas are very funny too (the year they decorated with pink flamingos was so clever!) If you go I suggest early when the open, less crowded. There is on street parking -- but... More

During Christmas, Phipps put on beautiful Christmas displays inside and a spectacular light show outside.I come here several times during the year and never got tired of... More

This was our first visit in many years and we were quite impressed. The facility is well-planned and offers a lot for guests to see and do. There are interactive features that we, as adults, enjoyed as much as the kids. We had lunch in the café and it was very good and offered a nice place to relax and... More

I don't know a lot about plants, but I do appreciate all of the lovely rooms at Phipps. Parking is an issue unless you go during the week. I love to visit during the frigid winter it is like a mini- vacation, it's so warm and tropical inside.

Beautiful rooms and arrangements. Always fun for kids when they have the "can you find it". Like a scavenger hunt, find items and check them off the list. They are hidden among the floral displays.
