Myth Busters

A new Cleveland Museum of Natural History exhibit explores the origins of legendary creatures.
Cyrus Taylor

Mythological Creatures permeate popular culture, from Disney's The Little Mermaid to tales of monsters mutilating farm animals. Opening March 3, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History's Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids delves into the natural and cultural forces that shaped mythological beings, according to Michael Ryan, the museum's curator of vertebrate paleontology. "We draw upon some of the creatures in the original Clash of the Titans," he says, "and show what the historical and natural history basis would be for some of those things."
