For one weekend only, Phipps invites you to travel back in time to explore the rich history of Pittsburgh’s glasshouse gem and its unique seasonal flower shows.

Celebrate a blast from Phipps' past as you view a selection of historic photos of our display rooms and see the remarkable transformations these rooms have undergone from 1893 until 2017. Friday only, chat with docents to learn about the rooms and the Conservatory’s colorful history. We invite you to bring your own photos at Phipps with you and share your memories with us. This event is free with the price of Conservatory admission.
