Notebaert Nature Museum tickets

Gate Prices Adult $9.00
Child (3-12) $6.00

Experience nature right at your fingertips in the heart of Lincoln Park. Thought-provoking, hands-on exhibits examine midwestern ecosystems and bring the natural world up close in extraordinary ways. The Judy Istock Butterfly Haven features a kaleidoscope of butterflies with 75 species from the Midwest and around the world.

Nature Museum visitors learn about the importance of waterways in urban neighborhoods in River Works. Mysteries of the Marsh and Istock Family Look-in Animal Lab provide a detailed look at our native wetlands and their residents. Three meticulously re-created environments in the Wilderness Walk immerse visitors in a prairie, savanna, and dune. Hands-on-Habitat invites budding naturalists to explore the secret world of animal homes while the Extreme Green House explains how our homes are linked to nature.
