  • Backstage Guitars
    Though they've been open for only three years, Backstage Guitars has already amassed an impressive collection of equipment and instruments from renowned brands such as Zildjian, Ludwig, Fulltone, and Remo at their two locations. An amiable and skilled staff can educate visitors on the stash of harmonic accoutrements on the store floor or lead them through private lessons in drums, guitar, and guitar-related instruments such as the ukulele or a field-hockey stick wrapped in spaghetti. Backstage's Rock Band Academy helps musicians to develop an even deeper appreciation of their chosen instrument, creating a band for similarly inclined students and culminating in a live set at Hard Rock Cafe.

  • PNC Carousel
    More than a century ago, the original Schenley Park Carousel took its first spin at the corner of Panther Hollow and Greenfield Roads. So when the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy breathed new life into the park in 2006 after many years as a parking lot, a carousel was viewed as essential to carrying on the land's legacy. The PNC Carousel is the crown jewel of Schenley Plaza, its mirrored facades glittering in the sunlight with every revolution. Like the original, a menagerie of animals sponsored by some of Pittsburgh's most charitable citizens honors the city's diverse population and secret wishes for an all-animal city council. The Victorian-style finishes are complemented by a pipe organ, which plays old-fashioned tunes as little ones glide up and down on eagles, giraffes, and elephants. Older riders are welcome to board the stationary seats, and the wheelchair-accessible design ensures all guests can take a spin.

  • Cathedral of Learning/Nationality Rooms
    When Dr. John Gabbert Bowman became chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh after World War I, he had a vision of a monument to education. So he built it, creating an astonishingly detailed work of architectural art that was also a fully usable addition to the growing university's classroom space. The Cathedral of Learning didn't just honor the university—it was a tribute to the city itself. More than two dozen rooms serve as portals into a golden era of the history and heritage of nations ranging from Yugoslavia to Africa's Asante kingdom. And the collection is still expanding. The Europe-centric first floor boasts the oldest rooms. Modeled on a Romanian Orthodox monastery, the Romanian Room is equipped with hand-carved chairs and an Orthodox iconostasis, while the stone arches and column bas reliefs of the Irish room symbolize the Gaelic oratories of the 12th century. On the third floor, visitors find the Indian room, boasting dramatic arena seating and a colorful watercolor triptych, and the baroque style of the Ukrainian classroom, with vividly carved wood and colorful ceramics traditionally designed to test the willpower of rowdy young students.
