This is a beautiful side trip when visiting the zoo. It is packed with ferns, orchids, and other tropical plants. It is well curated with most specimens easily identified by signage and information.

One of the best conservatories I've been to. It is small but packed with beautiful plants and flowers. I haven't see so many ferns or orchids in the same place in my entire life (one of the 4 rooms is only for ferns and one only for orchids). The admission is free and it is located right North of the... More

This is a great companion piece to a Lincoln Park Zoo visit. Like the zoo, this is a compact attraction. Not a huge sprawling place, but each inch has quality plants and flowers for the botanically inclined.

Looking for a variety of flowers found all over the world? This is the place to check out. You will be captivated by the abundant flora that overwhelms your senses both via scent and sight. Very close to Lincoln Park Zoo and a tourist attraction for those visiting the Lincoln Park area.

We were leaving the Lincoln Zoo when my husband wandered over near the Conservatory. At first we went in to use the restrooms, but upon leaving decided to peek in. What a beautiful gem in the middle of the city! I was amazed at the size of the building and the beautiful collection of plants. If I lived in Chicago,... More

We stumbled upon this on our visit to Lincoln Park and the zoo. We got off the bus at the corner near the conservatory and decided to walk through. It is free and so worth the time to walk through and admire the fantastic collection of palms, ferns, orchids, and all types of plants. It doesn't take long to walk... More
