We recently stopped at the Conservatory for the first time on a winter day. What a great escape from the cold! It must have been 75° degrees inside and our glasses instantly fogged up. What surprised me the most was how large the Conservatory is and how beautifully the displays are maintained with tons of small signs identifying the many... More

This is a great place to visit to get inspired (or guilt-tripped!) about your own garden and houseplants. This conservatory is much smaller than its counterpart in Garfield Park, but it contains many of the same features: towering palm trees, exotic orchids, delightful seasonal shows, an orchid collection, and a couple of pools with goldfish or koi. What it doesn't... More

I am so glad that I am able to review this place. This conservatory is Free......and worth the walk around the place. Very hard to find an attraction in the city that you dont have to pay for. Such a wide variety of plants and flowers. The conservatory is seasonal.....you will get to see all sorts of different plants all... More

This is one of my favorite stops in Chicago and Lincoln Park! What a beautiful oasis and especially in Chicago's COLD and LONG winters. It is also one of the few attractions in Chicago that is FREE! Definitely enjoy this attraction!

The FREE conservatory is a short walk from both the zoo and Fullerton Avenue beach. It offers a respite from the crowds and varying seasonal exhibits in addition to the tropical plants. Be prepared for significant temperature changes as you pass between the different environments. Great attraction for kids of all ages.

This FREE entrance conservatory is over a hundred years old; staffed by volunteers, and run on donations. It has a lovely Victorian glass covered botanical garden feel and houses a huge collection of plants. It is very humid and warm inside so dress appropriately if you want to spend any time at all. It was easy to reach from downtown... More

I take my grandtwins when they visit and as toddlers they enjoy it tremendously. My husband and I live steps away and we love to walk it as well. The fragrance of the flowers and the beauty is so relaxing that it takes you to feel thankful for nature and its wonders.

Next to the Lincoln Park zoo, this is a great place to stop and have a look! Plants from all over the world, and seasonal decorations. No food so bring a packed lunch if you plan on staying a while.

We visited around Christmas and it was amazing to see the numerous types of poinsettias that they had. Also in that area various trains were set up and miniature Chicago buildings added to the landscape. Lots of other interesting variety of flowers and plants too.

If you're in the city of Chicago, it's an easy drive North on Lake Shore Drive to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Right next door is the Conservatory. It's used a LOT as a wedding photo site (they do require a permit for professional photo sessions), but it makes a great setting for a stroll among the ferns and botanicals. The... More
