If you love beautiful flowers, trees, gardens, fresh air and nature this is the place for you! There are beautiful walking and biking trails to enjoy the acres of beauty. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes so you don't miss out on the opportunity to explore this living museum.

We visited there as a gardening group. We went on one of the 'reduced price days' this summer. BIG MISTAKE!!!!! There were oodles of baby carriages and children and day care centers. It made walking through the formal gardens very challenging. We wished we had come on a 'regular priced' day. The drive around the arboretum was absolutely divine and... More

I've been a member for a couple of decades and seen the Arboretum change from just a place for adults to enjoy to now a true kid-friendly attraction. I bring my nieces and nephews and we visit the exhbits which explain the area's natural history, the setller's interaction and the flora of different regions. For years, we (myself and now... More

A great place to visit to see the various woods and trails if you are into hiking though the best time of year to go here is in the fall and all the wondrous fall colors that come out.

Morton Arboretum is a destination that my family and I like to take when we're in the area. It's a nice natural oasis in the midst of the city and allows the kids to get out and enjoy something other than concrete. This trip we took the tram ride around and learned a good amount about the history of the... More

Attended the Asia Cultural Festival today at the Arboretum. Very well done with music, Kung Fu exhibition and a native plant sale. The arboretum is a great place to take family and friends. One of the great nature areas in the greater Chicago area.

One day not enough to see and explore the numerous collections of trees, bushes, and paths. Clean, safe, and very informative for amateur and professional botanical buffs with plenty to keep the little ones interested

I never expected to see such a beautiful oasis in the midst of a lot of cement roads. I guess we lucked out, since my cousin happened to have the app on her phone, so we just drove through the gate. My review might be different if we'd had to pay $22 for the experience. We walked for a nice... More

A beautiful place to escape the busy city streets and get back to nature. The Arboretum covers a large amount of land and each section is equally beautiful, with lakes, water falls, bush walks, or just to sit back and enjoy the view. This was a photographers dream with all the daffodils out in bloom, I wish I could visit... More
