  Phipps Conservatory
by ykx86

Phipps is a botanical garden located right behind Carnegie Mellon University. It's not a very big garden, but if plants are what you like then you might want to drop by. During early spring-summer season, Phipps has the Butterfly Forest exhibition where you can walk thru a tropical forest with hundreds and hundreds of butterflies flapping around you.
There are about 10 different rooms each with its own theme such as the Desert room, or the Fern Room, and the Victoria room.
It does cost you $3-5 a ticket to get in I believe.
