“Great in the winter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nice all year round, but get away and be surrounded by greenery in the winter. Special exhibits in spring and fall.

“The tropics all year round.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Full of palms, ferns, and unusual flora, the Conservatory is especially beautiful at Christmas and Easter, with special exhibits highlighting the season. Walk through in the winter and escape the cold weather Chicago is noted for. An oasis in the city, next to the zoo in beautiful Lincoln Park.

“Another wonderful free attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Not quite up to the level of the Garfield Park Conservatory and much more crowded, but still a wonderful stop while walking through Lincoln Park.

“Beautiful & Educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Conservatory is beautifully laid out & labels provide regions & names of plants/flowers. Located across a large lawn area from the Lincoln Park zoo, this is a nice, quiet place to visit to get away from the hustle/bustle of the city/crowds. It's about a 30 mins. bus ride (#22) straight shot from the Loop to Clark&Dickens (bus stop for zoo & conservatory). There are restrooms & drinking fountains located @ the entrance; best of all: free.
