Long Description:
The Museum's website (visit link) informs us:

"The opening of the new 6.35 acre Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum on Cannon Drive in 1999 heralded new opportunities to build on the Academy’s legacy of scientific inquiry, offering the public much more than dioramas and taxidermied animals. Complete with permanent exhibitions including a Butterfly Haven, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum became an interactive experience for adults and children alike."

Permanent exhibits include a butterfly haven, "birds of Chicago", a waterplay experience called "River Works", "Mysteries of the Marsh", "Extreme Greenhouse", etc. There are also outdoor exhibits surrounding the exterior of the Museum including a restored native prarie and a compost corral.
