Bunking with the Butterflies


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.

Nature Museum overnights are a shared learning experience for youth and their chaperones facilitated by Museum Educators. A light snack and a continental breakfast will be provided for all Bunking with the Butterflies participants. See below for information on custom Bunking with the Butterflies overnight experience options.
