  • Former Court building, promoting the city of Pittsburgh historic buildings saved was intended. Is by pretty old buildings in the downtown area and at the same time, conspicuous Romanesque architecture, was very characteristic differences in and around. General tours also available for some like entering public institutions for foreign tourists, simply by looking at the exterior a bit intimidating, so I gave up.

  • I didn't go in, but beautiful old building. Attached with a bridge to Juve courts which is also beautiful. Worth a visit and nice water feature in the middle
  • Marvelous stone architecture by famous architect H.H. Richardson. The beauty and sheer size are breathtaking.
  • It's best when not visiting this historic building on official business. Take a tour of the inner courtyard and admire the remarkable architecture. It's hard to believe this building is nestled in between modern skyscrapers.
  • This building is beautiful, and architecturally it is neat to explore inside and out. However, navigating the inside of this building for a specific purpose can be very difficult. You're not sure which doors to even enter through from the exterior, and once inside many rooms are labeled in a manner that was probably intended to be temporary but has become permanent.
  • Beautiful building. Somewhat confusing to navigate though. Staff was very friendly.
