We went on May 17 and were very pleasantly surprised. Tickets are a little steep at $22/adult but we were there over 4 hours so I think it was a good deal. Started with the mansion tour (we did call ahead for reservations) which took about an hour or so. Unlike other houses we have toured, you actually were able to walk through the rooms and not stand behind cords. We also saw the kitchen and bathrooms which also are often not available for view in other houses. We then ate lunch at the cafe which far exceeded expectations. Very good food - fresh, presented beautifully with flair. I had the salad with hot crab wontons and pears which was excellent. The desserts are also prepared by a pastry chef onsite- outstanding carrot cake. Very gourmet - not like a typical touristy place at all. Well-dressed locals were there for Sunday Brunch. The cafe is small- I would also make a reservation in advance- we got in only because someone with a reservation ddn't show up. We then went to the auto/coach musuem. An unusually beautiful building to display cars in- and they were impressive. Almost all were restored to their former splendor. The man at the door offered his guide services and we were very glad to take him up on his offer as he made everything so much more interesting. They also had some good short movies to watch. I am not a big car person but I loved it - we spent about an hour. The art gallery next- also a nice bulding. Not a huge collection but some interesting classical art. We got through that pretty quickly. The grounds were beautiful- very park like- gardens were lovely to walk around. I am sure they have beautful weddings there. Overall, a very good value and a nice drive from our hotel by PNC Park. Parking was onsite and very clean and safe in a ritzy neighborhood. As a side note, we also loved Monterey Fish Grotto and the Church Brewery. Not to be missed. Pittsburgh was an unexpected gem of a city in May with sunny skies.
