Be sure to have some sense when you go into the neighborhood. Don't leave valuables visible in your car. Aside from that, this is a safe place and one my favorite places in Chicago. The plants are beautiful. It's just gorgeous and relaxing.

Excellent option for visiting during your staying in Chicago, especially if you're on a budget or you have time to spend in a quiet and beautiful place. This's a free entry for Illinois residents or a really affordable fee if you're from somewhere else. This...More

Went here on a weekend with some classmates and it was so relaxing to unwind in the various "biospheres." The sense are stimulated and the air smells just as you imagine a desert/rain-forest would. The ceramic fountain is also a must-see.

An incredible experience for all ages. The flora are incredible. Great to sit, relax, walk and smell the roses.

This is an indoor conservatory. It is really nice to spend a day there with kids when it is too cold outside. There are some kid activities provided as well. It is close to the L and it has a parking lot also.

The conservatory is a wonderful way to spend a few hours during the day, relaxing, educational, eye opening. Have been to several conservatories across the country, Garfield is tough to beat. So many nuances and experiences, almost overwhelming. Well kept and maintained, Green, Green, Green....
