By exploring the permanent and traveling exhibits within the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, you are transported to the wonderful world of science and the natural world, from prehistoric times to the outer reaches of the universe!
Throughout the museum there are dioramas and displays, as well as interactive experiences, that allow kids to journey to the past, explore space, and uncover the lives of early humans without even need to leave the building!
You can meet the museum's OLDEST dinosaur in the Kirkland Hall of Prehistoric Life - can you guess how old he is? How about 225 million years!
The museum also features a number of other dinosaurs too, from the late Jurassic sauropod to a fierce preshistoric predator!
You can observe the Earth's rotation, and meet one of our human ancestors who is over 3 million years old - can you imagine living around the time when humans first evolved? Pretty amazing to think about!
If you can't visit the moon in person, why not have the moon come to you! At the Cleveland Museum of Natural History you can see a piece of the Moon that was picked up during the Apollo 12 mission - how amazing!
Also at the museum is a rare book collection, with one of the most important pieces being an edition of Birds of America by John James Audubon himself, published in the mid 19th century!
Let's not forget about the planetarium too!
