    A beautifully maintained conservatory in Baltimore. Plant collection is very impressive. Staff was very welcoming and eager to answer questions.

    The only thing preventing this from being a 5 star rating is that the observation areas at the top of Mount Washington are under construction.

    Super clean, easy and inexpensive close parking. Wide variety of food options inside the park. A must visit along the 1st base seating is Permanti Bros.

    Drive up the hill, park, and enjoy the view. It is spectacular. The incline railroad is cool if you enjoy that kind of thing.

    Interesting place with lots of booths selling items, almost like a flea market environment. Some good eating places and markets'

    Great place! So many bikes and more, all in one place. ET, Peewee Herman and more. Definitely worth a visit while in Pittsburgh. The Monkees bike is there too!

    Well maintained and expansive museum. Extensive gemstone/mineral exhibits and fantastic dinosaur exhibits. If you go after 3pm on the weekdays you get in for half off. We had no problem getting through the museum in 2 hours. I would recommend it unless you have little ones that don't move too quick :)

    The tour is very well planned as far as what u get to see in the playing/seating area and within the stadium. Our tour guide Carter was knowledgeable and funny. For those who have tickets to the games there are facts to learn. I think for those of us who can't get to games but visit Pittsburgh, it's an affordable way to become one with this beloved space. As I watch the games I will feel more like I am actually there due to the tour.

    One of the highlights of the museum was a whimsical pieces on the 2nd floor by a rotating guest artist. I did enjoy reading some of the background on different Warhol displays. My teenager enjoyed but younger children would most likely be bored.

    Our family of 4 (ages 13, 14, 40 somethings) visited the museum. Overall, the teenagers seemed to enjoy it. Our only complaint is we often didn't know where to go. The map was a bit confusing to us. The second floor had arrows and footprints. But, didn't find those on other floors. Coming off the elevator, we weren't always sure which way to go. We surely missed things. Somethings were kind of behind us. The exhibit name didn't always match the words that we saw painted on the walls.

    A lot to read. We spent over 2 hours. By then, everyone was tired and hungry.

    I wish they gave you additional days in between visiting this site and the other venues that the same ticket was honored at. You had to visit the next day and we already had something else scheduled. It doesn't let families get the full value of the ticket which is disappointing.

    Overall, glad we went. In the future, I would have cleared two days so that we could have visited this site and the other places that our ticket could be used at. So we could get the full value.

    This a beautiful park. I sat on the Allegheny side and relaxed. The fountain is the centerpiece and I saw a rabbit and several species of birds. A respite in a big city. I also visited Fort Pitt .

    It was not hot when we went nor very crowded so that added to the experience. We loved the escalators at the start and were surprised at how enjoyable the zoo was. Great exhibits and the animals were active. Loved the Gorilla VR experience. Even my teen daughters stayed engaged.

    The cathedral is magnificent. It is on the UP campus across from Heinz Chapel. The only challenge is finding a place to park. You will need to find a spot with a meter.

    Liked the national aviary. It wasn't too crowded on a Saturday. There were lots of different birds to see. Some of the experiences were a la carte meaning you pay extra to participate but overall we liked the place and entry was easy and reasonable.

    My teen suggested this place for our weekend in Pittsburgh, and we ended up having a great time. Neither of us had ever been to a laser show, so we saw the Queen one, and it was a lot of fun. There were a lot of demonstrations both inside and out going on the day we were there. Most of the exhibits are very interactive and the museum was busy but still navigable on a Saturday afternoon. The guitar exhibit was fun to play with. The gift shop was very reasonably priced too. We're both bummed that we missed the robot room that we noticed later on their website later, so we will be back at some point to check that out.
