This conservatory is very nice, warm and full of plants, as you would expect. It is free and right next to the Zoo, so you can do both - the zoo is free too. It makes for a nice half day in Chicago.

This is a really nice stop! Right next to the Zoo and very close to the beach.. No reason not to stop by if you are in the area!

The Conservatory is an excellent place to visit during Chicago winters because it is heated to tropical standards inside to help the plants grow. I wish there were more benches to sit and watch the plants grow. Be sure to find the dinosaurs scattered around...More

Beautiful glass facility with stunning ferns and flowers. If the Flower Show is in town, definitely a must -see! A lovely place to spend the day! Even better place for a small wedding!

Especially comforting to see brightly colored flowers and lush greenery in the middle of a gloomy windy early spring day, when summer seems so far away still.

The conservatory contains a beautiful collection of gardens, flowers, plants as you would expect. Lovely paths take you through all. Lincoln Park also is home to the Chicago Zoo and several fine Museums. A must see.

This was one of our favorite stops on our trip to Chicago! The displays were beautiful, especially the Spring flowers! The conservatory is free, which makes it even better. Our daughter enjoyed taking pictures of all of the colorful flowers and plants. Loved this place!

We found this place while wandering the Lincoln Park Zoo during a mid-March snowstorm. It was the perfect warm, humid respite from the snow; plants were gorgeous & well kept, and we loved the dino surprise in the Fern Room. Recommend for any plant lover!

Can't believe this is free. Absolutely loved the fern room and the little dinosaurs hidden around. The show room was superb- floor to ceiling flowers in full bloom- brought real joy on a winters day.

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