Open Until 11 p.m. Except Where Noted

Experience the beauty of our glass art and gardens in a whole new light.

Since its debut in May, the SUPER. NATURAL. Glass Art exhibit has mesmerized thousands of guests. Now, SUPER. NATURAL. Nights brings a new after-dark experience that has to be seen to be believed. As the sun sets, theatrical indoor lighting — designed specifically for this show in cooperation with Jason Gamrath himself — brings a new look to the oversized orchids, Venus fly trap, water lily and other SUPER. NATURAL. sculptures, making them sparkle and glow dramatically against the night sky.

While visiting, guests can enjoy an after-hours view of Phipps' celebrated orchid and desert plant collections, permanent glass installations by artists Dale Chihuly and Hans Godo Fräbel, and other fun sights as they explore our historic glasshouse. Pittsburgh Magazine named Phipps the "Best Place to Glow in the Dark" — explore Phipps at night to see why!

Phipps will be open to visitors 9:30 a.m. – 11 p.m. every night with the exception of the following dates, on which the Conservatory will close at 5 p.m.:

Sat,  Sept. 23
Sun., Oct. 1
Sat., Oct. 7
