The University of California Museum of Paleontology (UCMP) is a paleontology museum located on the campus of the University Of California, Berkeley. The museum is within the Valley Life Sciences Building (VLSB), designed by Arthur Brown Jr. Its collections are primarily intended for research and are thus not accessible to the public. A limited number of fossils from the collection is on display in the VLSB. Although located on the Berkeley campus, the museum is the primary locality for storing fossils collected statewide. The original fossils, around which the current collection has grown, were those gathered as part of the California Geological Survey from 1860-1867.
