Specialty Museum
Randyland is a garden made from repurposed materials found, bought & donated.

Property owner and dreamer, Randy Gilson, started in 1982 saving the empty

neighborhood lots and streetscaping 30 blocks into public art gardens. Randyland

(the yellow castle) was purchased at auction in 1996 for $10,000 and the dream began to take form.

  • We had some extra time in Pittsburgh and I had been wanting to visit this place based on the reviews. It was very enjoyable - a bit smaller than I expected so did not take long to visit.  more »

  • I have never seen such a positive happy soul as Randy. Peace, love and joy to you, thank you for sharing this spas with us. Don't ever let any one dull your sparkle.
  • Randyland isn't a location, it's an experience. Randy is not only amazingly talented, he is one of the most beautiful persons I have ever met. The art is phenomenal and it's truly a gift that he shares his home with everyone. Spend time taking in all the artwork and enjoy some lessons in life, laughter, and love.
  • The most unique place I've ever had the honor of visiting. The detail of his expressions are just wonderful and can't not put a smile on your face. I would have spent hours there if it hadn't started raining. 10/10 would recommend.
  • We were lucky enough that Randy spent some time with us. He was a fantastic host and gave us a great tour. His energy is amazing and infectious. So glad we got to experience it.
  • This is a beautiful demonstration of community commitment. Randy is a generous soul that works to make his neighborhood a great place for all. Very cool place
