This is where I spent four years of college so this has very special memories for me. Architecturally beautiful, inside and out. A must see while in Oakland.

Cathedral of Learning非常漂亮,可以到36樓一覽匹茲堡市景,亦可在一樓感受大廳的宏偉並參觀Nationality rooms。不過Nationality rooms是上鎖的,千萬別忘了去位於一樓大廳中間的gift shop租用導覽耳機,導覽耳機會附上Nationality rooms的鑰匙,一次約4USD,非常的值得。另外,離開每間Nationality rooms需記得將門再次鎖上。

Most of the ones we saw looked accessible. There are elevators that provide access to all the floors.
