Things to do in Ohio: Cleveland Museum of Natural History

An all-new exhibit will shine a light on the natural phenomenon of bioluminescence at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. “Creature’s of Light: Nature’s Glowing Mysteries” showcases the incredible organisms that shine through the darkness – from dense forest to the deepest depths of the ocean, the darkest caves and more. 

The exhibit from the American Museum of Natural History (New York) will run at the Museum’s University Circle location from Sept. 1. through Jan. 7, 2018. The exhibit is free with museum general admission.

In Creatures of Light, visitors will move through a series of re-created environments, from the familiar to the extreme, to explore the diversity of organisms that glow and how they do it; discover the variety of ways in which light is used to attract a mate, lure unsuspecting prey, or defend against a predator; and learn how, where, and why scientists study this amazing natural phenomenon.
