Lovely way to spend an hour. It wasn't too crowded and it was a nice break from the city.The view outside the conservatory is iconic, definitely worth a stop for that alone.

When it's freezing outside and covered in snow, this is a great place to escape to for a tropical experience. The minute you walk in you are transformed into a rain forest. Lose the coat and enjoy the jungle. What a great place and its FREE.

One afternoon I went for a walk round Lincoln Park and saw this signposted. Whilst it may not be the largest conservatory, even in Chicago, it packed in quite enough exotic plants ancient and modern to delight the eye. Well worth a good look round.

We walked through the Conservatory after we finished up with the Zoo. It was nice, well kept and had some really pretty flowers and plants. Did not take too long to go through the entire thing, and did have bathrooms on site. Not many people were in it while we were which was nice, if your are going to the... More

This is a very nice conservatory that is right next to the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. Definitely worth a short walk over to see it while at the Zoo.

Our thing is plants, and they have a bewildering variety arranged in rooms of similar families so it's so easy to contrast and compare.

This was a nice quiet area to get away . Next to the zoo with a formal garden in front is the conservatory. They had some very pretty exotic plants, a with bubbling fountains all around. Big green area out front for kids to run around and run off some energy.
