The conservatory isn’t large but it is beautiful and well worth the visit. You won’t need long. I visited in December and loved the holiday flower show.

Lincoln Park Conservatory is a great place to view lots of exotic plants, I only came in for 10 minutes but my trip was enjoyable and you probably don't need that much longer there unless you are really interested in plants. Not a must visit...More
