The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is planning a $125 million expansion and renovation, and has named its design and engineering team. More than a third of the funds have been raised, and the museum plans to break ground in 2016.

The museum says the renovations will integrate labs, research and 5 million artifacts and specimens throughout the public galleries.  

Architects include Fentress of Denver and URS of Cleveland.

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History was incorporated in 1920 and includes the GreenCityBlueLake Institute for green designs and sustainable cities.
