Cleveland's natural history museum to start $125M renovation in 2016

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is moving toward a major renovation project.

Museum officials say they’ll break ground on the $125 million project in two years.

Plans call for the museum to tear down about half of its existing space and then add new construction.

The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports that the area that houses the museum’s collection of dinosaurs and prehistoric life will be rebuilt.

Museum Director Evalyn Gates says the final designs are still evolving. She says one goal is to change the museum drab appearance on the outside.

One other change will be the addition of a parking garage.
