The Cleveland Museum of Natural History was officially founded on December 13, 1920, although its origins reach back to the 1830's. Since its beginning, its focus has been the natural history of our world in general and northeastern Ohio in particular. Objects in the Museum's collections include specimens from global, regional and local expeditions. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is a collections-based research and teaching institution which strives to preserve the natural diversity of the region and educate others about this diversity in its programming to public and schools.
