Spend the day in Oakland and catch both Phipps, University of Pitt tower building tour and the museum of arts/natural history-you won't be disappointed! This is high culture at its finest!

Spent a happy few hours here wandering around the glass houses. The displays of plants is amazing and follows a logical pattern. Very accessible and set in the lovely University park area of Pittsburgh..

Even if you're from the Pittsburgh area, and even if you have been to the Conservatory before, you simply should go again. If you're a first time visitor, leave lots of time to meander slowly among the plants and flowers and totally relax. Sit on...More
