Phipps Conservatory, Pittsburgh

One of the highlights of our short trip to Pittsburgh was the Phipps Conservatory. Located to the east of the city in Central Oakland, this impressive botanical garden offers a huge variety of plants to enjoy as you stroll around the magnificent building and gardens.

Some displays include a palm room, orchid room, desert room and a children’s discovery garden. There is also an onsite gift shop and cafe.

The Conservatory is open 9:30 am to 5:00 pm except for Fridays when it closes late at 10:00 pm. There is free parking available on-site however it seemed to fill up pretty quickly so I would recommend arriving early.
