    The Cleveland Museum of Natural History will begin Phase One of its centennial renovation including a new Perkins Wildlife Center.

    “The $150 million renovation and expansion project will transform and reinvent the Museum by 2020—100 years after the institution was founded. Construction will begin in March on a new outdoor Perkins Wildlife Center—one of the most popular of the Museum’s exhibits and home to the Museum’s live Ohio animals and native plants. In the coming year, Phase I will also include the construction of several key visitor amenities, including a parking garage with 300 spaces on three levels and a landscaped west garden that will serve as a gateway to the University Circle cultural district from Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.”
