It's off the beaten path of downtown Chicago but well worth the visit. Stunning vegetation. Elaborate weddings have been held here because of the beauty.

I would plan at least two hours. It's not enormous, but there are so many books and crannies to explore. We anticipated an hour and it took almost two.
