Bunking with the Butterflies is an unforgettable slumber party experience at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum! Spend a fun-filled night participating in nature-inspired games and crafts, exploring the museum, getting up close with live animals and being surrounded by the wonder of the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven.
Nature Museum overnights are a shared learning experience facilitated by museum educators. A snack will be provided the night of your arrival and a continental breakfast will be provided the next morning. See below for information on our public scout overnights and custom private overnight options.
