“Understand plants and natural world”

The Chicago Botanic Garden opened a little more than 40 years ago as a beautiful place to visit, and it has matured into one of the world's great living museums and conservation science centers. Each year, nearly one million people visit the Garden's 26 gardens and four natural areas, uniquely situated on 385 acres of land on and around nine islands. Six miles of shoreline extend along 81 acres of water, including the Great Basin, North Lake, and Skokie River Corridor. The Garden also has a renowned Bonsai Collection.

The Chicago Botanic Garden has 50,000 members—the largest membership of any U.S. botanic garden. People of all ages, interests, and abilities participate in programs, take classes, and stroll the grounds year-round. Within the nine laboratories of the Garden's Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Plant Conservation Science Center, scientists and graduate students conduct a wide array of plant research. The Garden is one of only 17 public gardens accredited by the American Association of Museums. Its Lenhardt Library contains 110,000 volumes — including one of the nation's best collections of rare botanical books.

Nearly an hour distance from the city center, this place is a plant world.
You can either walk and just admire the flowers existing everywhere, or take a tour guide in order to get informed about everything.

Chicago Botanical Garden was full of people when we visited and everyone was excited about the great variety and beauty of the different flower species you can see there. My children kept asking questions about everything but they were immediately answered by the polite guides.

Very interesting and educational.

Probably one of the prettiest sights on my cross-country trip. Don't be fooled by average appearance in the beginning, go all the way in to experience the beauty. Best to visit on a weekday and early in the morning to avoid crowds.
