I love the design of this building. It houses offices, class rooms and a museum (the International Rooms). These rooms are also used as class rooms which makes this a very interesting educational experience. There is a great room with a fireplace where you can...More

The Cathedral is the centerpiece of Pitt. It is majestic and gorgeous inside and out. It is filled with international schoolrooms all furnished and detailed to transport you to schoolrooms in countries all over the world. This is a must see for anyone visiting campus!

Always a great place to tour. The themed classrooms are great to see and understand what they are about.

Visited last holiday season when all the rooms were decorated. Dosins are students, but very knowledgeable on the history and the culture represented by the specific room. Very educational for older children and adults.

I always wondered what was in this building so now I know. The entry is incredible with architecture never to be reproduced.

Stepping inside the Cathedral of Learning puts you in the cavernous Commons Room, which is a stunning sight on its own. But see the reviews for the "Nationality Rooms" in the same building. They're the real attraction.

The Cathedral is only open until 4 PM because it is used for classrooms. Never dinners. Weekends the vending machines are available but the food court is not open for hot meals.
