Lincoln Park Conservatory

Lincoln Park Conservatory

Even in the dead of winter, you can find a bit of paradise at the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Built in 1890 as a “paradise under glass,” this Victorian-era edifice is brimming with tropical plants, ancient palms and exotic ferns. During the spring and summer months, there are formal gardens just outside the conservatory. Docent tours are free.
