    The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is not just a fun, educational, interactive museum, but was THE perfect wedding venue for us last year! It easily accommodated all 150+ of our guests and kids, who absolutely LOVED the museum, the butterfly haven, the outdoor terrace and cocktail hour space, etc. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. You can do an indoor or outdoor ceremony and reception, with minimal decoration since the museum itself is already so naturally beautiful, bright and vibrant!Working with Mary Kehoe was a dream come true. She did so much to make our wedding soooo beautiful and perfect! All the months leading up to this day too, she was right there and ready to help us in any way she could, and especially in the weeks before, she was so supportive: answering all our questions, assuring us of everything, letting us stay in after-hours, walking us and our families/friends multiple times through the entire site, introducing us to all the security guards and staff to help us be more comfortable with everything on that day….all the while with a beautiful smile on her face and the most encouraging spirit. This was such a blessing to us!! And even though Mary wasn’t scheduled to work our event that night, she made sure to stop by just to double check on things and ensure that EVERYthing was perfect…and it was. I’m sure she is like this (and is so busy) with all her brides and grooms, but I truly thank her for making us feel like the only- and most special- ones, every time I talked to her. I hope you can also consider the Nature Museum as an alternative to the typical hotel or banquet hall for your reception. And if not for your wedding- at least make a visit and check out the awesome butterfly haven! 😉

    Quite an enormous museum! Very modern look to the space. Really special area inside to view real live butterflies!! It was terrific! Wonderful view on their patio areas that they have. It is quite expansive, this museum. There’s several trails to the place, i definitely recommend this because it just has some surprises along the way. Like the route we took, we saw a little pond. Just really a beautiful place to learn and sight see.

    My favorite part is the butterfly section! You can walk in this big area with butterflies flying free. Tons of butterflies in all sizes and colors and when you leave there are mirrors so that you can make sure you don’t have any hitchhikers on you. Lots of neat interactive activities for kids and a summer camp. Close to Lincoln Park Zoo, Fullerton Beach and The Conservatory so it’s a fun spot to hit that’s near other attractions. There’s also a nature walk with native plant around the outside that’s really cool.

    Pretty impressed by this place. I went there for a school assignment (grad school marketing assignment) and found it to be pretty awesome. The Butterfly Room was so beautiful, real butterflies flying around in a beautiful ambiance! The place was so engaging and the playroom for the kids was so cool. The “green” basement is a great place to teach kids and adults about energy conservation. I would take my kids here if I had any, for now I’ll take my husband:-)

    Just went there for Thursday residence free day. It is a real nice place for any kids from infant to toddlers. My baby is crawling. They have enough play area for crawler! They also have this butterfly lab that let those butterflies freely fly around you. Kids love it!!!I can’t wait to go back there next Thursdays!
