The Nationality Classrooms are located on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh in the Cathedral of Learning. The Cathedral is a 42-story gothic structure which houses the great Commons Room whose columns and soaring arches provide the setting for the classrooms.
The classrooms are a tribute to Pittsburgh's ethnic heritage. Funded by the ethnic groups and communities they represent, the functioning classrooms are virtually a mini-tour of 23 nations and many time periods of the world's culture. During December, the rooms are decorated in traditional holiday styles. Guided and tape-recorded tours are both available. A fun and educational attraction in the Oakland section of the city.
