We have been twice and loved it.

If you like plants or just need a quiet, indoor space, this is good. Always a nice place to stroll and talk. Good with kids. Never crowded. Perfect in bad weather.

This conservatory is somewhat small, but they do have lots of plants. One of the rooms is strictly for orchids, which was quite nice. A nice place to visit for 30 to 45 minutes.

This place is free and amazing! It is very hot inside so be prepared for that. There are so many plants and flowers, it is just gorgeous. And it's right outside the Lincoln Park Zoo! This is a must-see if you go to Chicago.

My first day in Chicago was 45 degrees and raining. Walking around inside this conservatory with a hot coffee was a great escape from the weather

This is definitely worth an hour or so of your time. So many beautiful plants and flowers to see. This is right next to the Lincoln Park zoo so convenient to do both at once.

If we lived close to Lincoln Park, we would walk thru this place regularly. You could walk through it several times and still not see all that it has to offer. As you enter the conservatory you walk through a large Palm Garden. It is just amazing. Each room you enter seems to have its own themes. We loved the... More

I'm lucky enough to live close to Lincoln Park and all it has to offer. Several days during the week I will walk to the Lincoln Park Zoo and go through the Lincoln Park Conservatory (both free). The Conservatory is an amazing place to explore. They have seasonal exhibits that are also remarkable (The Christmas exhibit with the train and... More

So many different species of flowers and shrubs. Make sure if you are visiting the Lincoln Park zoo you take time to check out the Conservatory too!

In Licoln Park and right next to the Zoo, this is a must see - and free - tourist stop. It's not the largest (San Diego's Balboa Park and London's Kew Garden for instance are considerably larger) but this measures up as one of the finest for content and a size where smaller kids won't get so bored as to...

Although the temps were in the upper 30's to mid 40's, Spring had definitely Sprung in the Conservatory. The large array and variation of Spring flowers made one want to just sit in the midst of all the fragrant beauty and allow it to enfold one in its gentle blanket of peace. Yes, they do have benches inside the areas... More
