What a lovely and interesting place to visit. We did a Saturday morning walk about. Parking was ample nearby, and admission seemed fairly priced. There were so many amazing plants to see, and all within a well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing facility. The butterfly garden was a huge plus, and our favorite part of the exhibit. A must see gem in Pittsburgh!
I COULD SPEND HOURS AND HOURS HERE! Oh my goodness is it one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. All the different types of plants/flowers/trees you could imagine with separate rooms with different climate to adjust to the type of plant in the particular room. This is ARTWORK! They decorate for the different seasons and holidays always mixing it up keeping us guessing! My favorite is Christmas it is a must see around Christmas time!
