Not very diverse or extensive it was an enjoyable few hours but not fantastic. There are a lot of glass sculptures nestled in between the plants which at times I felt took away from the natural beauty.

Phipps is a wonderful place to visit as you can be surrounded by luxurious vegetation any time of year. The flower shows are always different and change from season to season. There are various rooms to explore as well as the outside gardens if weather permits. You can have parties and weddings there as well. There are several pieces of... More

Phipps has been a fantastic way to spend an afternoon in Pittsburgh since 1893. The beauty of both the indoor and outdoor gardens never gets old as the exhibits are continually updated. From the indoor butterfly garden of the summer to the spectacular candlelight Christmas Flower show complete with mulled wine and seasonal live music there is something for everyone.... More

This is such a beautiful place for everyone, even children of all ages! There are children's activities all year round, including the children's interactive garden, the butterfly room in the spring/summer, the train room in the fall/winter, the little shopping area when children can get a cart, choose their "groceries," and pretend to cash out! The most spectacular event of... More

Phipps Conservatory is a Pittsburgh Mainstay since 1893. Not only are the flowers amazing but they also have classes for children to learn more about nature and the environment. Reasonably priced. We usually take our grandchildren with this time it was just us. We saw the butterfly exhibit which shouldn't be missed if possible. Price of admission is as follows:... More

We first visited in December 2016 for the winter show and then bought a family membership. Need I say more? Our family of 3 has been back about 12+ times since. I've honestly lost count. Being a homeschooling family, it has proved to be very profitable educationally. Where else are you going to find a Mangrove Tree in Western PA... More

Around the holidays there is a beautiful display of decorated trees, wreaths and glorious plants and flowers. Tiny white lights adorn the pathways as there are decorations inside and outside. It's beautiful to visit any time of year, but a real treat to get you in the holiday spirit during Christmas! A must!
