Visitors learn all about the ecological history of the Illinois Region at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. Educational lectures and workshops offered for adults provide a valuable learning experience. Children learn about nature and science up close with hands-on creative art projects, storytelling, animal feedings and more. The Nature Museum also offers several classes designed to appeal to the whole family. Teachers and students love visiting the museum for field trips. A favorite of visitors is walking through the glass butterfly house, which features more than 200 species of exotic butterflies from all over the world!
