Visiting UCMP

The UCMP is primarily a research museum and thus our collections are only open to the public during our annual open house on Cal Day (see Public programs). However, we do have a limited number of fossil exhibits on display outside of the collection, including a magnificent Tyrannosaurus rex mount and some other dinosaur fossils. These can be viewed, free of charge, any time the Valley Life Sciences Building is open.
