Tucked away beside the zoo is this little treasure! Well worth the time and walk through! The orchids were beautiful and the docents were friendly!

There is no way you could remember the names of all the plants you will be seeing at this place but I'm sure you will enjoy seeing the colors and shapes of this wide variety of plants gathered under the same roof.

I always enjoy stopping in here on any trip to Chicago. In the winter, it's really great to get inside to the tropical room, and in summer, it's still enjoyable.

This relaxing walk through exotic plants is a change of pace in the Midwest. Near the Lincoln Park Zoo it rounds out a nice fresh air day in the park.

The highlight of my trip to Lincoln Park! The orchids are amazing, but the volunteers are so knowledgeable and eager to share their knowledge with you!

I used to live near the conservatory and always stop in when I visit the zoo or area nearby. This time I had my kids w/ me - 3 and 7 - and they equally enjoyed it.

So many cool plants from around the world. Ferns and orchids. Water lily pond. Koi fish. Vines. Coffee plants or are they trees - either way they have them. The building itself is also pretty cool. You can see all sorts of old mechanical parts...More

There is no admission fee and parking on the street is free on Cannon Drive, although it is hard to find an open space.
