The Phipps Conservatory doesn't only look magnificent from the outside, but inside too. With all those colorful and lush flowers, plants that you've never seen before or wouldn't have thought existed, the place is like a small heaven on Earth. I highly recommend a visit to the Conservatory, you will not be disappointed.

If you can, try to go between 3 and 5 o'clock, that's not a peak hour and there are fewer visitor.
