Lincoln Park Conservatory Tours

Dating back to the 1980s, the Lincoln Park Conservatory transports visitors to another time. This conservatory specializes in tropical palms and ancient ferns and grows the thousands of plants used in Chicago’s parks. Visitors explore four display houses – the Palm House, Fern Room, Orchid House, and Show House. The Show House holds the annual flower shows. The Conservatory is located in famous Lincoln Park, making it an accessible natural getaway within the city. 

The Conservatory was building phases between 1890 and 1895. It has undergone renovations over the last century, mostly to update the technology used to house, grow, and showcase the plants. The Conservatory was designed in the Victorian tradition. The building is glass with intricate trusses in the style of ogee – or S-shaped – arches.
