Lincoln Park Conservatory Tours

star-3
7 Reviews
Lincoln Park Conservatory
Nestled in Lincoln Park, the Lincoln Park Conservatory is made up of four display houses; the Palm House, the Fern Room, the Orchid House, and the Show House. Built in the late 1800s, the houses grow over 1,000 different types of plants that are used in Chicago Parks. Visitors can explore their interiors, and wander through the scenic botanical gardens that surround them.

The Basics
Located close to the lake and near Lake Shore Drive, the conservatory is easily accessible from other popular nearby attractions like the Lincoln Park and the Lincoln Park Zoo. A few select city tours include a stop at the conservatory, but it can easily be visited on your own. Entry is free, and you can explore at your own pace, or opt for a tour of the facilities that’s available with a donation.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • With hundreds of plants to wander through, it’s a must-visit for nature lovers.
  • You can explore on your own or take a tour for a more in-depth visit.
  • Entry into the conservatory is free, although a tour requires a donation.

How to Get There
The Lincoln Park Conservatory is located in Lincoln Park. Paid public parking is available in the lot behind the conservatory located on North Stockton Drive. The 151, 156, 134, and 143 CTA bus services stop nearby. Divvy bike sharing stations are located nearby and are a great public transportation option during the warmer months.

When to Get There
The conservatory is open everyday from 9am to 5pm. Since the exhibits in the four houses are indoors, the plants are always green and lush no matter the time of year. The outdoor gardens are full and thriving during July and August, and the display ends around mid-October. To see the most during your time, visit in the warmer months so you can explore the outdoor attractions.

Visit the Nearby Lincoln Park Zoo
Spanning over 36 acres, the Lincoln Park Zoo dates back to the late 1800s and is a popular nearby landmark that shouldn’t be missed. Home to about 1,100 animals including polar bears, big cats, gorillas, penguins, and reptiles, this family-friendly experience is fun for all ages. With free admission 365 days a year, the zoo is an easy stop even on a short timetable.
