Cal Day

The MVZ holds an annual open house in conjunction with UC Berkeley's Cal Day, with special displays that highlight the collections and diversity of vertebrates. Visitors get a chance to see and handle a variety of live animals, including snakes, and to chat with faculty, staff, and students about research or classes on biology and natural history at UC Berkeley. This is the only day of the year that the Museum is open to the public. Click here for recent Cal Day pictures from the MVZ.

Another Successful Cal Day at the MVZ!

Another successful Cal Day has come and gone! Our final visitor count for the gallery was 2635, which is 350 more people than last year!

Each year, the MVZ comes together to deliver the most popular show on campus. It is the one day each year that we can share our museum with the public and they have come to know and love us for it.

We are extremely grateful for all the hard work put in by MVZ faculty, staff, postdocs & students in generating exhibit content for the gallery. In addition, our Cal Day volunteers did a fantastic job engaging the public and ensuring that visitors were interacting with the displays in a meaningful way.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to Cal Day 2015!
