With little blooming outdoors, it was great to immerse ourselves in the beautiful springtime exhibits in the conservatory. Every room was delightful display. The orchid room has so many variations. Would definitely return in other seasons to see the changes.

We went on a evening during a week day, not much crowded. I was able to find street parking just opposite to the conservatory. You will be mesmerized with the variety of flowers at display. You can easily spend 2-3 hours. They have a nice cafeteria where they serve drinks and coffee and sandwiches. The staff is very helpful will guide you as needed. You will not realize that this is one of oldest conservatory but from the inside it looks brand new.

We enjoyed visiting this oasis of flora and fauna during a recent trip to Pittsburgh. It was very cold outside and nice to see everything in bloom inside. Wonderful special exhibit on Cuba.

The day we went it was very crowded inside but the line moved along. Not as nice as Longwood gardens but worth a visit. Go at night for lights display.
