Curbside Contactless Pickup & FAQs

While the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum's building is closed, we're excited to provide an online store so you can purchase all your favorite Nature Museum items!

We've selected our best selling Nature Museum merchandise and items for contactless shopping and we're taking every step we can to keep everyone safe.

In order to limit person-to-person contact and keep folks safe, all pick up orders will be received via curbside pickup at the Nature Museum. You'll arrive at the Nature Museum, you'll receive your order, and you'll be on your way.

Our goal is to make this as simple and safe for you as possible. 

When can I pick up my order?

Upon purchasing you may choose from a selection of pick-up times throughout the week; Monday 12pm-3pm and Thursday 12pm-3pm. You may show up any time during that selected window to pick up your order.

How will curbside pickup work?

Place your order today through our online store and choose a pick up window. All payments are managed online when you place your order and you will receive a confirmation email.

Prior to pickup, you will receive a reminder at the email address you provide for the order.

We will prepare all orders ahead of time, so no matter when you arrive, your order will be ready.

When you arrive, you will go to the entrance of the Museum and ring the bell, someone will answer and meet you to hand off the order. You can park temporarily in the bus turn around with your hazard lights on.


Feel free to contact or call (773)-755-5177 for more information on the Nature Museum online store or on our procedures for contactless pickup.
