Located in University Circle, Cleveland’s own Natural History Museum houses a wide variety of ever changing exhibits. By maintaining low entry costs and organized, interactive exhibits, the museum is dedicated to educating local students and traveling visitors. The museum is very popular during the day as it is used as a educational tool- and a destination for multiple field trips- for preschoolers through university students from around the area. Over recent years, the museum has changed to primarily focus its exhibits in the categories of geology, botany, zoology, and biology. Upon entry to the museum visitors are able to choose five different directions to begin exploring: the planetarium, the animal, collection, the geology collection, the outdoor habitat/zoo, or the monthly-featured exhibit. The Natural History Museum is home to over four million specimens; therefore, all of the exhibits are constantly changing providing for a tourists destination one can visit over and over again! To accompany your visit to the museum, a newly renovated cafe is located to the left of the entrance. There are a variety of food selections available for purchase in the cafe ranging from hot meals to a fresh salad bar.
