The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is a natural history museum run by the Chicago Academy of Sciences in Chicago, Illinois. The museum can be traced back to the academy’s founding in 1857. After a century at a nearby location, the academy opened its current museum in 1999 at the intersection of Fullerton Parkway and Cannon Drive in Lincoln Park, named after benefactor Peggy Notebaert. The museum focuses on the natural history of the Chicago area and provides educational programs for both children and adults. It is also known for its live butterfly house, which is attached to a laboratory and program to study and improve the populations of butterflies in the Chicago area.
