100 Years of Discovery: A Museum’s Past, Present, and Future

Adults

Learn about the Cleveland Museum of Natural History through its founding to the present day.

It’s been a momentous century of science and nature, for both the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Cuyahoga County Public Library, but the best is yet to come. Learn of the visionary Clevelanders who paved the way for the Museum’s founding in 1920 and see the helm of a schooner on a 1923 expedition to the South Atlantic. See where Balto made his impact and learn about our innovative bald eagle restoration in the 1970s. Journey through the decades as the Museum digs deep into Cleveland’s ancient underwater past and takes important steps toward understanding human origins and health. Join us in charting the possibilities of the next 100 years and leave inspired by the future of scientific exploration. As we reinvent our visitor experience with you at its center, get an exciting sneak peek of your transformed Museum—coming in 2024.
