  • A really beautiful place to visite. The abundance of flowers and plants was amazing. They had an exhibition with artworks in glass placed among the flowers which was amazing.

  • We come to Phipps for their excellent flower shows at least twice per year. This magnificent and historical building is well cared for and the plants and flowers are beautifully arranged and maintained. Handicap/disabled accommodations are very good, and there are lockers for storing coats and bags near the restrooms in the main lobby. The gift shop is impressive and prices are affordable. Save 10% with your conservatory membership. The Spring and Holiday exhibits are among the best shows, especially the night lights in Nov-Dec. Overall, this is must visit destination for plant lovers while in Pittsburgh.
  • We come at least once per season and we've never been let down - it's a must-see for Pittsburgh! We also hosted our wedding here, and it was amazing. Phipps is obviously gorgeous on its own, and the staff for planning our wedding was exceptional. We worked with David for catering and Caroline for coordination, and both were knowledgeable and made the process easy. The folks who helped setup and serve food at the wedding were also very nice and professional. Thank you all!
