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

The butterfly exhibit is a must!!! There was lots of very interesting things that I had never considered. The trivia game was fun and although we did not win the Cockroach we enjoyed ourselves. The best part was we got to walk the museum with...continued

Review from John Lyman

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.

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

My wife and I had great fun! It was a new experience for us, as we had never been to the museum before. Butterflies were brilliant! Petted a snake! Almost won the trivia contest...we were that close, lost the tie breaker!

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

Fun! Staff/volunteers were genuinely friendly. Best part was butterfly garden. Buy tokens for $2 each to redeem for drinks (craft bottle beers or wine). Donations accepted for food (looked like Pita Inn).

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

Review from Pauline

Laid back, no guides, and activities were posted. I would have liked to have gotten a better greeting and information at the front desk.

Review from Chelsea R. White

This was a fun little outing to get to see a museum I haven't been to since I was a kid! It was so much fun, with so few people around we got to be the kids again, playing with the river exhibit and 'exploring' the jungle. And the butterflies were...continued

There were nine of us who went. It was the first time for each of us. The Frank Lloyd Wright presentation was informative. The Butterfly Haven was the best. I could only imagine what it would have been like with a group of children running...continued

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

Fun weeknight date-night activity. Trivia at the event was fun as well! Make sure to bring cash if you plan to purchase beers or you'll be paying the fee at their PNC ATM.
