It free, it has been around for years. It's not big, but it is worth a look. They have it broken down it climate zones. If you are into gardening you will enjoy.

We spent HOURS in the conservatory, and we could've spent more! It was absolutely gorgeous and the tiny little dinosaurs in one of the rooms was very cute!

Very beautiful space and neighborhood. Just a quick jaunt from the city and worth a visit. And it's free! You won't be disappointed!

We took a youth group through the conservatory and it is a very quick walk through. No more than me 30 minutes to walk the whole way through and see the flowers and plants. If you are into Boston or landscaping you would probably enjoy the trip through. It was not very exciting compared to many other things in Chicago.

This place is gorgeous and FREE - you can't go wrong with that at all. It's right outside the Lincoln Park Zoo so be sure to walk right on in before or after!

Very well-kept, with many varieties and types of plants. If you are visiting Lincoln Park to see the zoo, I recommend walking through the also free Lincoln Park Conservatory to see the many different types of beautiful plants that are well kept here. The Conservatory is located next to the Zoo, within Lincoln Park.

I was so focused on visiting the Zoo that I didn't realize there was a conservatory. Although we had just missed an exhibition, there was still plenty of plant life to look at. The park and gardens surrounding the conservatory are wonderful to sit in and just people watch. There's also a really cute display of plant life during the... More
