    This conservatory was just beautiful. Our visit was in spring with the tulip show taking place. Exceptional floral displays.

    We drove up and walked around. You can watch the Duquesne incline and wander around the station as well as get pictures on its observation platform.

    Great Great Great facility and just a beautiful ballpark...great location and view of the skyline. I dont think there is a bad seat in the house. Easy to get around in and you have to go to a game if you are around here.

    The man working that day was so helpful, so nice. It was not crowded and is very interesting. Great views.

    Great area to check out in Pittsburgh. It is a mix of shops/restaurants. Yes, there are tacky t-shirt shops but they are mixed in with very high-end chocolate and flower shops. I liked the eclectic mix. We had a great pizza lunch at Bella Notte. Definitely a must to explore when visiting your Pitt student like I was.

    A place that has every bike know to man. I found my first bike from 73. A must see for riders and a great nostalgic tour of the bikes of your youth.

    The admission ticket includes both the natural history museum and art museum which is connected. I mostly wanted to see the natural history museum but did both. I really enjoyed the dinosaur and gem exhibits. The American Indian section was very interesting as well. There is something for everyone here and it's nice that $20 gets you into both.

    A realt food museum which gives you a broad knowledge of Andy Warhol. The museum takes you throughhis life cronologically and have a large collection with artifacts from the different periods. Liked it very much.

    We really enjoyed our visit here. We toured each level of the museum and stopped for a soft drink in the museum cafe. The cafe prices were very reasonable. Our favorite floor was the 4th flour with the Heinz 57 displays and the Mister Rodgers items. But the whole museum was well done and interesting.

    I visit this park constantly due to its proximity to my campus. I absolutely love this park-- it's so nice! Very quiet and well lit a night. It is a must-see for tourists coming to the area!

    We really enjoyed this place! All animals seemed happy with plenty of room to wander! It was a little hilly for older people wishing there were more places to sit!

    What a stunning building! My daughter has classes here, so she gave me an unofficial tour of the interior. It reminded me of Hogwarts! So lovely. I only saw one of the international rooms and would love to tour those some day. What a special building.

    Great exhibits on birds, including several free fly areas where one can get up close and watch the birds walk and fly around. They have one of only 100 Guam Kingfishers left in the United States.

    Fun things to see and do. But it is a little pricey for what you get. It could use more activities and things to see. Young children will love it. Older kids, not so much. We spent no more than 2 hours here.

    We spotted Randy while we drove by. The couple of times I've made it to Pittsburgh, I've always felt its worth a drive past Randyland!
