Park
“The Morton Arboretum, in Lisle, Illinois, is a public garden and outdoor museum with a library, herbarium, and program in tree research including the Center for Tree Science. Arbor Evenings: Music and More The special exhibits are always interesting, innovative, and well curated. During my last visit I had to make sure I saw the LEGO exhibit. It was breathtaking. This peacock was amazing. In an earlier couple of visits it took two visits to find all the trolls. Workmanship on them is fantastic! I’m a member, so I was able to enjoy the hunt in a couple of visits. I deducted one star because frankly while I love the space.”
