The parking was free and plentiful, the beer and wine selection more than adequate (suggested prices $3.00/$4.00), and it was pleasant to be able to visit the exhibits with other adults! Turns out there are a decent number of us with playful...continued

A fun way to see the museum without taking a day off work, or fighting weekend crowds.

Great event! Booze, butterflies, popcorn, trivia, and access to the museum without kids running around everywhere. We had a great time!

It was great to saunter about the museum at a leisurely pace and not have to fight crowds. Butterfly exhibit was great, trivia game was entertaining, and the staff was friendly and considerate.

It was nice to wander the museum without the schools. The museum really put some effort into making the extra activities fun!

Was such a fun, chill experience especially on a cold rainy night. The Butterfly Haven was totally worth it alone. The 'hands on' Boa Constrictor experience was cool too. Also the food trucks outside were a great idea! Street parking out in front...continued

Great way to see the museum, fun people abound, trivia is cool, supports a good cause, I'll go again. Neat place to meet people and to hang out with a group of people.

My friend and I had a great time! We won 2nd place in the trivia game, met some interesting people from the burbs, and good snacks. We were pretty much on our own in the place, no guides or such. More for kids I feel, the Notebaert is, but it was...continued

This was a very enjoyable evening and we will probably do this again. Listening to interesting lectures and the ability to walk around the museum after-hours was a nice adult experience where you were not interrupted by kids. The only...continued

Adults only nights at a museum is a brilliant idea. Pizza and beer was sold. The beer choices were excellent and reasonably priced. Quite a few of the interactive displays were not on or didn't work, but overall great expereience. Butterfly...continued

The nature museum is wonderful, we never knew it was there. The butterfly room was fun. We really enjoyed the Reptiles brought by the Chicago Herpetological Society and the music of the Kodiak Farm Boys. There was so much to see. There is a...continued

I arrived late being misdirected by my mapquest and unfamiliar with the center. It was well conceived and well attended but I left early feeling under the weather because I had a medical procedure that morning

A chance to see the museum at night with just a few people around. Beer and wine served and games were offered. Went more for the social aspect but there were too few people and no real chance early on to meet anyone. They had a trivia game but...continued

Access to exhibits was as described, although you can't see most of them with drink in hand. 80% of the people played trivia, I did not expect this to be such a trivia-based event. Not much was done to spur interaction between attendees.

This is my second time going to the Peggy Notebaert Museum. It is a real treasure in the city of Chicago. The garden area is beautiful and the exhibits inside are enlightening and educational.
This was my first time attending the Nature on Tap. ...continued
