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.
