My husband is originally from PA and his parents live just outside of Pittsburgh. The first Thanksgiving I went home with him we went to Phipps with his parents and brother and it was breathtaking. There is so much to see and so much beauty in every location- it is definitely worth the trip.

Since that November trip (over a year ago) we've gone one other time with them in Spring and it was like a whole new experience with their Spring exhibits and decorations. This is a place you can go back to multiple times a year and see different things- very beautiful!

This is a well maintained facility and one never tires of strolling through. Each season brings a fresh experience

The themes for each room were fun and well done. The Chihuly sculptures were seamlessly integrated. The new exhibit with the nod to the Worlds Fair exhibit at the Carnegie Museum was delightful.

Never a real fan of botanical gardens, but this was a treat. Really well done, and plants are accessible to savor their aromas.

When you go to Pittsburgh, this is the one attraction you must not miss. It takes about three hours to see it, at a moderate pace, if you stop to take pictures and enjoy the Chihuly artwork as well.
