Bunking with the Butterflies at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

March 24, 2023 | 5:45 PM - 8:30 AM

Spend an unforgettable night at the Nature Museum! Meet live animals and participate in nature and science inspired activities during this memorable event.

Participants will sleep within select exhibits, make memories with friends and family, and, of course, enjoy the wonder of the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven.

Join other scouts, families, and groups in making the Museum your home for the night! Educators will guide you through exploring during hands-on activities, meeting live animals, playing games, and more. A light snack, continental breakfast, and a custom Nature Museum overnight patch are included in the price. Everyone is welcome to join this public overnight, developed for youth from 5 to 11 years old.

Nature Museum overnights are a shared learning experience for youth and their chaperones facilitated by Museum Educators. Click here for more information on the public overnight and the custom Bunking with the Butterflies overnight experience options.
