Explore The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier

When the weather outside is frightful, look to Navy Pier’s indoor botanical garden, The Crystal Gardens, for your winter Chicagoland oasis.


The Crystal Gardens is a beautiful, indoor one-acre botanical garden at Navy Pier. This six-story glass atrium with a 50-foot arched ceiling holds more than 80 live palm trees, lush foliage, hanging twinkle lights and dancing leapfrog fountains. The Crystal Gardens offers beautiful views of the lakefront, Chicago skyline and Navy Pier’s Centennial Wheel, and is located just steps from the main entrance to the Pier on the second level.







The Crystal Gardens is one of the most Instagram-worthy spots on the Pier! Whether it’s a selfie or a group photo, you won’t want to miss snapping a picture at this spot.

If you’re looking to plan a private corporate or social event, The Crystal Gardens is a great place to host it!
