Mo to Sa from 09:00 AM to 02:30 PM,Su from 11:00 AM to 02:30 PMLocated within the Cathedral of Learning of University of Pittsburgh, The Nationality Rooms are essentially very unique classrooms. Covering the first and the third floor of the building, each of these 29 rooms depicts an ethnic culture and nationality that has had a hand in developing Pittsburgh. Each room was designed by a dedicated architect, usually hailing from the same culture as the room reflected; and every room is beautifully done up employing architectural styles and artifacts from its respective ethnicity. For example, the Indian classroom mirrors the courtyard at Nalanda University in Bihar and the Turkish one represents a typical Turkish hayat and features Turkish artworks and knickknacks like the Evil Eye. Established in 1938, these make for a thoroughly interesting visit.
