Exterior concept design at Cleveland Museum of Natural History Expansion

The $150 Million Museum Expansion is Closer to Completion

Back in June, we were selected to design the next phases of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History Centennial Transformation Project. The multiphase project was initiated over ten years ago and includes several phases of renovations, as well as a 50,000-SF addition for education and exhibition spaces.

The campaign to transform the museum’s entire campus is anticipated to be fully finished by 2026, but Phase 1 (Gateway) is gearing up for completion by December 2020, in time for the museum’s centennial celebration. The new changes are expected to improve circulation, expand programming, and provide connections to the surrounding natural landscape.
