The conservatory is located next to the Lincoln Park Zoo. It is free and has some wonderful displays. It is a nice place to visit in the middle of the winter when you hardly see flowers and plants thriving outside.

This is great spot to visit if you're also taking a trip to the neighboring Lincoln Park Zoo. It's also wonderful in the winter time. You walk in and are immediately wrapped in warmth and humidity.

I absolutely love the Lincoln Park Conservatory. It is located near the north end of the Lincoln Park Zoo and I feel like it is often overlooked. They have a beautiful room full of colorful orchids and the air in there is so fresh and clean! It is a great spot to take photos and appreciate nature. In the winter,... More

Great displays, and considering that it's free, don't waste your time at the conservatory in Evanston, if it's winter. Wonderful exotic plants and engaging docents
