Step into spring when you visit our TulipMania display at the Conservatory. Boasting a rich display of vibrant tulips along with 28 interpretive panels from the Chicago Botanic Garden, TulipMania presents the tulip’s fascinating history from its humble origins in Central Asia to its status in seventeenth-century Europe, when a single bulb was worth a fortune. The story of the tulip is told through richly-coloured, illustrated graphic panels that explore the mania for tulips in Holland to the unraveling of the mystery of the flower’s extraordinary colours by modern science.
You can enjoy the TulipMania display until June 5.
The Conservatory is open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
