Everyone goes to the Lincoln Park zoo and skips right by the conservatory, but we always include it on our list!! This is a beautiful conservatory with lovely well established plants and they are displayed wonderfully. It's so peaceful and beautiful.

This is a place to get renewed and stir up the inner gardener! A walk through here is just what the doctor ordered and will have you smiling even on a tough day!

When you are in deep freeze winter mode, there's nothing nicer than instant access to the tropics. Enter LP Conservatory. Although my heart is at Garfield Pk Conserv, with the roads snowy nasty, we went for the closer LPC. The orchids were great and spring show was being installed....nice bright blast of flowers and green. I told a plant tender... More

What a beautiful little gem hidden right by the Lincoln Park Zoo. Admission is free and so is parking, that is if you're lucky enough to find it. It's a grand greenhouse chock full of amazing plants and flowers, some that grow high up and some that creep and some that produce fruit, heard of a potato tree? Well, they... More

Located in a park between brownstone townhomes and the lake, the Lincoln Park conservatory is a must-visit for anyone in Chicago

After suffering from some vandalism a few yrs. ago, they have recovered as much as possible. They have a few special holiday shows every yr. Their orchid room is great. There is a room with tropical trees & plants, then a room of various ferns. It's next to Lincoln park Zoo, both free. I would pay to go here.

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!
