Great. Very interesting, informative and a wide variety of things to look at. The Butterfly House is fabulous, for children and adults alike.

Compared to all the other museum events in the city, this one is severely lack in content. Besides one speaker at the beginning and a trivia deal, that was it so we ended up just wandering around the museum. I was expecting more of a brewer...continued

Enjoyed the special exhibit History of Bycycle in Chicago.

It was fun to get an opportunity to go to the Nature Museum after-hours and get a tour of the facility. I thought that there would have been more food, however. Popcorn doesn't cut it as a snack for an event from 6-9pm. There should have at least...continued

Visiting the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum without the craziness of children running about was very appealing. I was able to actually spend quality time reading a lot of the exhibit signage as opposed to just walking by and glancing at what was...continued

Arrived late rather than early. Butterflies were sleeping. Interesting museum. Event, not so good. Thought price of admission included refreshments. Not so. Would definitely return to the museum, but event wasn't worth the trip.

Initially I thought- nice event. Loved the beer selection, the reptiles and the enthusiastic snake guy. Trivia was ok and the butterflies were sleeping. As soon as we got there we did crafts and my sister was made to feel like it was her fault...continued

We had a nice time! Loved the Butterfly Haven and learned a lot about bats. Good to have a drink and learn something too! They also had a little food which was nice but we were going out to dinner afterwards so can't tell you if it was good but...continued

Went here on a date night. It was perfect! The butterfly room is incredible! My boyfriend and I held snakes and he fed the bearded dragon. We were able to take in the museum at our own pace and explore without little ones running around. Plus,...continued

Casual and fun. The full museum was open and it was nice to wander without any crowd. I recommend joining the trivia match and checking out the butterfly garden, though most of the butterflies were asleep.

Don't waste your time or money. This event is adults only because they serve alcohol. The museum itself is definitely geared for young children. Extremely disappointed
