Thank you for choosing to visit the Garfield Park Conservatory! At this time, in-person group registration is on hold until further notice. Please check the COVID-19 Updates page for more updated information.
Take your group on a virtual tour of the Garfield Park Conservatory! Tours are a live-streamed, interactive experience with a Conservatory educator tailored to your group’s interests.
Interested in booking a virtual tour with your group? Please fill out this interest form. We look forward to helping you plan an engaging and meaningful virtual tour to the Conservatory and Gardens!
Once we are able to resume in-person group visits, here’s what you can expect:
For future reference, we ask all groups of 10 or more to register in advance of their visit. This not only alerts us to your presence at the Conservatory, but enables us to provide the best possible experience for your group. We welcome adult groups Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm.
Admission for adult groups is free.
What can we do while we’re here?
Check out one of our free drop-in demonstrations to find out more about urban gardening, beekeeping and composting, or book a guided tour to discover more about the history and plants in our collection or to go behind the scenes at the Conservatory. If you’re more of a self-directed group, take yourselves on one of our digital tours and, finally, if you’re young at heart, challenge your group to a scavenger hunt throughout the collection.
How do I know if I have an “Adult Group”?
An adult group is considered a group that has less than 10 children, has more adults than children, and whose visit is focused on the adult experience, as opposed to the child’s experience.
