Since 2003, the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates has been located in the Johnson Center for Birds and Biodiversity, along with the Lab of Ornithology. The Johnson Center is located five miles north of
Cornell's central campus, in the Sapsucker Woods Sanctuary. CUMV does not contain any public exhibits, but the museum does offer tours to classes and other interested groups upon request. Requests should
be made several weeks in advance of a tour. In addition, the museum encourages the use of the collections in research by members of the scientific community, and by students, whether in thesis work,
independent study, or class projects .
Please contact a staff member well prior to any visit so we can assure that one of our staff is available to assist you.
