Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum
The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is the urban gateway to nature and science. It's a unique venue for the public, especially urban dwellers, to find new ways to reconnect with the natural world.
The Museum provides award-winning exhibitions and programs to students and trains and provides resources for Chicago teachers. The Museum is one of the city’s best examples of eco-friendly building technology, including a green roof, solar panels, natural light sources and native landscaping. The Academy and its Museum are engaged in important conservation and research work, such as its Butterfly Restoration Project.
