Head over to the Pitt campus! Great architecture and head to the cathedral of learning to check out the nationality rooms. Go on the weekends so you can see all the rooms with limited use. Get there before 230pm as the 1st floor classrooms close....More

This was a great experience, and took us the better part of the morning. The rooms are located in the cathedral of learning. Each room will take about 10 minutes, and you will learn a few things about each country. The cost is minimal, and...More

These are themed classrooms in the Cathedral of Learning on the Pitt Campus. Most of them are on the outside of the 1st floor but there are some more on the 3rd floor. When we were there around midday, about 1/2 of the classrooms had...More

These are so unique - if you have visited those countries, you know that the essence of the people is here. Best is that local immigrants groups planned and financed them. Thank you, Pittsburgh immigrants!

Excellent way to see various cultures decorating styles. My favorite ceiling was of the Polish Room- looks like a duplicate of one in Wawel Castle in Krakow Poland...but all of the onces we saw were really nice! I'd visit again.

Unique experience. Tour it alone or pay $4 for the audio tour. I was glad I had the audio to guide me through all of the nationality rooms. Well worth seeing.

This audio tour cost just $4 and was worth every penny and more. Self guided tour of the wonderful classrooms decorated in the style of different countries. A really unique experience that I dont think you'd find anywhere else in the world.

Elevator takes you to top, you can view entire Pittsburgh hills. Bottom floor kinds of dark (even with light on) but is big hall you can rest. Restroom on 1st floor.

It is free unless you want a Cassette to take around and listen to what each room has to offer. I think it was about $4.00.
