CHICAGO (CBS)– Chicago’s Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Lincoln Park reopens Thursday, for the first time in 15 months.

Among its many exhibits, the museum’s 2,700-square-foot greenhouse is home to more than 1,000 free-flying butterflies.

In July and August, the museum is open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays; with a return to regular hours in early September.

If you can’t get there, you can enjoy the virtual museum online.
