“a grand place for a wedding”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Located in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, this chapel provides an intimate atmosphere for the romantics at heart. Great place for family and friends to gather and excellent spaces for that special wedding photo shoot. Accessable by car or bus, parking available in nearby garages or lots.

“Amazing artistic tribute to history and culture.”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 via mobile

Heinz Chapel on the campus of PITT is a must see on your campus tour. The windows are stunning! Check out the website for detailed info and history of the building. www.heinzchapel.pitt.edu
There is no admittance fee to the chapel. If you are visiting Carnegie Mellon it is right across the street and shares the lawn with the famous Cathedral of Learning.

“Worth a look”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

The Heinz Memorial Chapel is worth a look if you are touring the Pittsburgh area, especially if you are at the Carnegie Museum/Library/Music Center complex. The stained glass windows commemorate many people/events in U.S. and Pennsylvania history. Impressive.

“Beautiful stained glass”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

The stained glass windows are some of the longest running stained glass anywhere. They are beautiful and original. Also ask for the pipe organ demo. It is awesome. The people working there were very nice. Do not forget to find the church mouse.
