Welcome to the Midwest Museum of Natural History!
MMNH is a unique museum that features a world-class collection of mounted animals from around the world in its permanent exhibit hall, including one of the few mounted African elephants in the United States. It is our vision to connect the community to the natural world.
Stop by the museum to make your own ECO-FRIENDLY Pinecone Birdfeeder. Birds that over-winter in Northern Illinois can benefit from these easy-to-make feeders that you simply hang in a backyard tree! Admission + $2.
Sam the bear has been framed for a crime he says he didn't commit! Become the detective and help solve the case by exploring different crime scene techniques. Splatter art included, so bring a change of clothes! Admission + $7.
