CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is raising money for a proposed $125 million expansion project.
Part of the expansion is intended to bring curator and research laboratories currently unseen by the public into glass galleries. That will allow the public to view activity in the labs.
New classrooms also will be added to help the museum emphasize hands-on learning for students.
Museum officials announced last week that board president A. Chace Anderson and museum trustee James Hambrick will direct the fundraising campaign. Anderson is a partner in CM Wealth Advisors. Hambrick is chairman, president and chief executive officer of Lubrizol Corp.
The goal is to raise the $125 million within five to seven years.
The museum includes more than 5 million artifacts and specimens.
