Inside The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

Updated: 9 February 2017
The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum offers one of the most delightful, surreal opportunities to connect with nature. Culture Trip explores this Chicago treasure trove.

The Chicago Academy of Sciences was founded over 160 years ago, and this Lincoln Park location has thrived throughout the years due to its beauty but also its one of a kind, hands-on science instruction. The museum is best known for its Judy Istock Butterfly Haven and the gorgeous array of butterflies floating about the greenhouse. The museum hosts daily activities that include events such as butterfly releases, live animal feedings, bird walks, and more. The nature museum is a beautiful place to take children, take your camera to shoot photos or even host your next event. It can be as interactive as you want it to be, or a serene spot to relax and let your mind wander.

Starting off Monday in an awesome way with an Advocate Leadership Development Institute at the nature museum.
