What a surprise! A windy Chicago with cold winter is a great place to learn about tropical plants!

We were kind of caught of surprise ... After visiting Chicago in December a couple years ago, I thought that any plant in this city must be freeze resistant ... Well, I was so... read more

This is attached to the zoo at the western entrance near Fullerton. It was a very nice exhibit of all kinds of trees, plants and flowers.

We always called it the "Flower House" and the intense humidity of the interior always strikes you. Absolutely beautiful. Fun to walk through, great for children. Super combination with Lincoln Park Zoo which is basically next door. Easy bus ride from downtown or Michigan Avenue hotels. Wonderful calm hour or two to enjoy

What's not to like? It's a beautiful venue with no fees. Gorgeous plants - both inside and outside the greenhouse enclosures - and informative displays. My favorite thing on this visit was the little dinosaurs hidden throughout, and watching kids discover them. Can't miss with this attraction. Parking is challenging, but its worth a few loops around the block. Next... More

The Lincoln Park Conservatory is a magnificent Botanical Garden!! Located on the grounds at the Lincoln Park Zoo (also FREE!!), this is a quiet respite among the bustling city! Highly recommended!!

From ferns, palms, orange trees and so much more displayed in an environment that is a little humid but worth a trip. Not all areas are easily accessible to persons with disabilities, and small children might get a little bored but it's certainly worth the hour it takes to go through it. Open 9-5 and right next to the Zoo... More

Nice place to walk around and view a top notch botanic garden. There is no charge and it is close to the zoo so the two could easily be done in a day. Good display of plants over several rooms.
