To ensure the easiest and safest arrival experience for all our visitors, we require that tickets be purchased or reserved in advance of all visits.

Masks are required every day between 10am and noon for the safety of our youngest visitors. As the Museum monitors the situation, this updated policy is subject to change. Masks are available upon entry.

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is reinventing the Museum experience with an expansion, a complete reimagining of its campus and all its exhibits, and the addition of new public spaces. During this time, some areas may be temporarily closed, but there is still plenty to see while these exciting improvements are underway. We are working diligently to minimize disruptions as we continue to maintain the best possible guest experience.

At the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, we believe that discovery starts with you. Explore our exhibits, meet our wild animals, take a hike, join a class—all while creating meaningful memories.

We make science relatable by cultivating your curiosity. When you visit the Museum, you’ll have the opportunity to delve deep into the past in our dinosaur hall, discover the outer reaches of the Universe through our astronomy programs, and experience natural wonders in outdoor galleries. Traveling exhibits bring the world to Cleveland with an ever-changing variety of new subjects to explore.

Beyond the Museum campus, we protect more than 11,000 acres through our Natural Areas Program. Each preserve harbors at least one unique natural community, including hardwood forest, Lake Erie island, fossil dune ridge, marsh, swamp, and glacial wetland. Together, these areas represent the remarkable biological diversity that was once widespread throughout the region, and now serve as educational and scientific resources. Our naturalist-led hikes and classes provide access to a wild Ohio you may never have imagined.

The Museum is also a leader in sustainability through our GreenCityBlueLake Institute.
