“Pretty cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

The rooms and Cathedral are pretty cool and worth a visit if you're in the area. It isn't the top destination, but definitely interesting.

“World-Class Classrooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

A hidden jewel at the center of the University of Pittsburgh. Each classroom is decorated authentically to reflect specific countries and nationalities. It's free to walk through the classrooms unless you want to pay for an inexpensive tour. Best time to visit is Christmas!

“Interesting for any age”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

We were planning a quick view of the cathedral, but our 2 kids (15 and 11) were fascinated by it. They loved doing the self-guided tour of the nationality rooms. There are a number of historical rooms on the first floor that require a small fee and a key to enter. There are more nationality rooms on the third floor that can be viewed for free and have a self-guided tour button on the wall. All beautifully maintained.

“Fun to do with visiting family, students”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

The nationality rooms have a unique and interesting history here at Pitt. They are an inexpensive and interesting way to pass an afternoon in Pittsburgh. I've gone on tours with students and walked through informally with family and friends.
