The Cleveland Museum of Natural History

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is located approximately five miles (8 km) east of downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The museum was established in 1920 by Cyrus S. Eaton to perform research, education, and development of collections in the fields of anthropology, archaeology, astronomy, botany, geology, paleontology, wildlife biology, and zoology. 

Over the years of its existence, the museum has become one of the leading centers of scientific research in the USA, which attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world

The museum has embarked on a multi-year, $150 million renovation and expansion project. DLR Group was selected to design the project in June 2019, and the museum broke ground on its new visitor hall, lobby, and exhibit wing in June 2021. A new entrance and other upgrades opened in December 2022.

The newly revamped Murch Auditorium features 3-D movies through a partnership with D3D Cinema, a creator of immersive cinema, VR experiences, and experiential storytelling through first-to-market technology. The auditorium – which seats 500 spectators - is equipped with high-quality MAG Cinema sound, which allows its visitors to truly enjoy and emerge in impressive 3D films,  nature, and science documentaries on the big screen including the best sound! 

Testimonial Museum of National History: 

"As we worked with D3D Cinema to design and reimagine the AV in our immersive cinema, it was imperative to incorporate a top-tier audio experience for the viewers. The team selected the MAG Audio system to deliver an enhanced surround sound solution and the results have been phenomenal. MAG and D3D engineered a state-of-the-art system with incredible depth and clarity, from dialogue to music to ancillary non-cinema presentations. We take great pride in offering an exceptional AV experience to our guests, and the quality of our sound system is second to none."
