LOVED this place. One of the few free things to do in Chicago, including free parking! Perfect for winter visit. My 4 year old loved the children’s area and spraying all the plants. Will definitely be visiting again!

This is home to Chicago's biggest and best indoor gardens. You begin your adventure into a beautiful tropical garden and then embark other amazing journeys, such as a giant fish pond with glass sculptures, a mosaic fountain, and a desert-themed garden.

Very soothing & refreshing. Great way to reconnect with nature. Temperature was perfect. Even though it was indoors it felt just like being outside

This in my opinion isplace the greatest Conservatory in the world. I have been in and out of this place over this years since the 1950's and have never been disappointed.

The conservatory is not in the best neighborhood but there is plenty of parking to visit by car or take the ‘L’ (Green Line) almost to the door. One of the best conservatories in the country. You will not be disappointed.
