Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is a Pittsburgh gem — a thriving oasis with many unique environments to explore. Begin your journey in the LEED®-certified Welcome Center before entering the exquisite 1893 glasshouse with ever-changing displays. Then, continue on to the Tropical Forest Conservatory and the Center for Sustainable Landscapes, one of the greenest buildings on Earth. You can indulge your senses with breathtaking seasonal flower shows and exhibits; ground-breaking sustainable architecture; gorgeous outdoor gardens and green rooftops; and more. You will also be able to see a special exhibit before it closes: SUPER. NATURAL., created by Jason Gamrath, a master glass artist from Seattle. Jason Gamrath brings an exciting new twist to the art form, creating botanical pieces that are remarkably accurate representations of their living counterparts — only on a massive scale, standing anywhere from six to 14 feet tall. The show fills the Conservatory with more than 40 major installations, each of which was carefully selected for each room and location, and many of which were custom made for Phipps. Café Phipps offers a variety of dishes that awaken the senses with colorful presentations, complex aromas and fresh flavors. The café’s full menu is available until 7 pm with grab-and-go items available until 9 pm.
