The Nature Museum and Calihan Catering are no longer accepting any new bookings for private events at the Nature Museum building. For many years, the Nature Museum has been one of Chicago’s premiere rental venues welcoming weddings, parties, groups, and birthdays in an unmatched natural setting.
We are foremost a museum and educational institution, and following an extended closure of our museum building during the pandemic, we are focusing our resources on prioritizing and strengthening our core mission – fostering connections to nature and science by welcoming visitors to our Museum building, supporting science education in Chicagoland classrooms, and connecting with audiences across the country with engaging digital resources.
We are continuing to honor all existing private event bookings, but will not be accepting any new bookings, contracts, or inquiries. If you have any questions, please contact us via the form below.
