“Gorgeous and perfect any time but especially in Winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

What a wonderful respite from cold and snow. Visit there and be transported to a warm and humid world or gorgeous foliage! The staff does a great job and it is a Chicago institution worth visiting

“Garfield Park Conservatory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

One of the best I have visited. Don't miss it. Very close to the "El" station. Great photo opportunities.

“Nice place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The inside is very hot but that is understandable for a conservatory. There is cool plant life on the inside. It's hard to find parking though, and their hours aren't very consistent. I am not fond of the area in which it's located.

“Incredible place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Location isn't great but the minute you step through the front door... you'll forget you're even in the state. The beautiful fern room, the gorgeous goldfish and so much more. Plus it's free! Although we donate a few bucks with every visit. You can easily spend an hour here without noticing the time.
