It’s official. For the first time in their 90 year history, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History just announced a major expansion and renovation. The $125 million project will bring the basement laboratories, research centers and bone collections out for public view while building two new wings and a spectacular new entryway.
Listen to Dr. Evalyn Gates, Executive Director and CEO of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History as she describes the exciting changes coming to CMNH. Watch the video here.
“It is so exciting, it’s time for this museum. We have so many incredible treasures inside. We want to find a way to show visitors more of the real science that’s going on, let them see the animals in a little different light.”
