I drove by there last week and was quite surprised at the progress. Very nice to see the pachyderms out in the light again.
And what's the roller coaster about???

I thought that was a coaster as well and researched further. Its just an elevated walkway.

We stopped by the Museum at this past week's Wade Oval Wednesday and got a glimpse of the model as well as current progress. This is going to be so sweet when finished in 2020.

Very curious to know what's going on this renovation in light of this unfortunate news of CEO Evelyn Gates resigning.   This project needs to be a game-changer for generations to come.
 
Anyone hearing anything??

Evalyn Gates leaves Cleveland Museum of Natural History after 7 years as director over differences on project

Updated Dec 6, 6:41 PM; Posted Dec 6, 1:38 PM

By Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer
 
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Evalyn Gates, the executive director and CEO of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History since 2010, has left her position after having differed with board members over how best to proceed on its partially finished $150 million expansion and renovation.

"We all agreed this would be the right thing to do," Gates said of her decision.

She added, "I will use the word painful," when asked how it felt to leave the museum.

The museum's news release said an interim head will be named soon, and the search for the next CEO is to begin immediately.

Leaders of the institution said Wednesday night they are re-evaluating the expansion project's scope, size, content and technology because some of the plans date back to 2010-2011 and need to be updated.
