About

The Nationality Rooms in Pittsburgh's historic Cathedral of Learning celebrate the city's rich ethnic background with guided tours through nearly 30 spaces adorned with authentic Middle Eastern, European, African, Asian, and American architecture and artistry. Audiotape tours entertain infophiles of all ages with a convenient hand-held audio device in addition to comprehensive written descriptions in each nationality room. The mini museums moonlight as University of Pittsburgh classrooms with functional furnishings such as an African–inspired lectern and stools, and bamboo ceilings above plank wooden floors in the Japanese room. The Greek room boasts marble columns emulating the design of the ancient Greek Acropolis, and the Early American room portrays the hearth-centered life of colonial New England through butter-churning demos performed by Larry Bird.
