Fodor's Review

A 70-foot-long dinosaur skeleton and a model of the world's oldest human fossil—"Lucy"—are among the treasures housed here. The collection contains artifacts and environmental samples from nearly 1,700 sites and documents more than 10,000 years of prehistoric life in Ohio. The largest specimen is the 3,600-year-old Ringler Dugout, one of the oldest watercraft found in North America. The museum is also known for its 1,500-piece collection of rare gems, and the Shafran Planetarium & Astronomy Exhibit Hall. Planetarium shows cost an additional $4 with your museum admission. HealthSpace Cleveland merged with the museum and will begin incorporating health-oriented exhibits here in Fall 2007.
