Museum of Natural History set to evolve 

The Museum of Natural History will close its doors to the public Sunday, in preparation for a major renovation of the building.

The Museum of Natural History will close its doors to the public Sunday, in preparation for a major renovation of the building.

The nearly 40-year-old structure is badly in need of an overhaul, says public information officer Judith Shiers-Mille.

The plan is to completely rebuild the Summer Street entrance, including the doorway, the brickwork surrounding it and the landscaping in front of it. While that work is underway, some minor but potentially dangerous ceiling work will be done inside.

If all goes well, the museum will reopen in January.

"Everyone should come say goodbye to Gus before we close," says Shiers-Mille. The 87-year-old turtle will be regularly fed during the closure and will be "virtually exercised," assures Shiers-Mille.
