The Nationality Rooms at the Cathedral of Learning are wonderful, but even if you don't tour the rooms, the main hall is beautiful. I loved the medieval feel of the room!

Beautiful and serene, gothic architecture and quiet. A great place for contemplation. If you're in the area stop in and see this place.

The Cathedral is pretty interesting and picturesque. It may not be worth a special trip, but if you're in the area, I would check it out.

The Cathedral is only open until 4 PM because it is used for classrooms. Never dinners. Weekends the vending machines are available but the food court is not open for hot meals.
