The summer shows at Phipps Conservatory are always bright and vibrant, and 2024's Summer Flower Show goes nautical with the theme Under the Sea!

Check out aquatic sea life, join scuba divers exploring the deep, and more in this absolutely beautiful show.

As with all flower shows at Phipps Conservatory, we do not like to give away what you can see at all the rooms. So in this one, we wanted to share a few of our favorites. To see the rest, well, you'll have to visit for yourself!

The East Room

It should go without saying that The East Room is a favorite of ours for any flower show at Phipps Conservatory, and during Under the Sea you get a great look at a nautical theme complete with swimming walrus and a giant clam that will truly make you feel like you're under water.

Be sure to hit the interactive button for a clam surprise!

The Victoria Room

The Victoria Room is one of the best spots in Phipps for the water features, and for an aquatic themed show, it sure is a fun one. This one features a scene of a scuba diver exploring the deep, taking up-close-and-personal photos of a family of sea horses!

As a scuba diver myself, this one spoke to me as it reminded me of many fun adventures in the deep that I have taken myself.

South Conservatory

As one of the largest rooms at Phipps Conservatory, the South Conservatory is a fun one as you can make a full loop around the exhibit. This one evokes memories of a popular under-the-sea movie complete with a shipwreck, a shark that makes its way in and out of the wreckage, and swimming fish to name a few.

We always love when large display pieces come out at Phipps, and Under the Sea does not disappoint here!

Construction at Phipps

Flowers at Phipps Conservatory

Before visiting Phipps for the Summer Flower Show in 2024, we must note that two rooms are presently undergoing restoration. The Sunken Garden and Desert rooms were closed during the Summer Flower Show.

We expect these two rooms to not be accessible for the duration of the show; however, if we hear of the restoration being completed prior to the end of the show we will update this article accordingly. While the Sunken Garden room is under construction, guests can still pass through to reach the Victoria Room and others as shown above, while the Desert Room was fully closed off during our visit at the start of the show.

As always, Phipps blew our expectations away with Under the Sea, and we highly recommend visiting to check out this stunning show!

Under the Sea at Phipps Conservatory runs through September 8th, 2024. Please note that advanced purchase, timed tickets are recommended.

After visiting the show, be sure to take a walk around Schenley Park!
