Visiting the MSB Division of Arthropods: click here for maps and general directions to the MSB under the heading "Visiting the Museum". Note: the 2nd map link provides a detailed .pdf map of the UNM campus, but you must click on the "UNM Campus Map" .pdf link once that map page opens.

If you are visiting without heavy materials that need to be delivered by vehicle to the museum, please park in the Parking Structure, Building 198, just west of Johnson Field, and walk to the CERIA (MSB) Building, Building 83. The entrance doors to the CERIA Building are on the west side of the building. The Division of Arthropods is located just inside the front doors, up the short flight of stairs, to the right, and through another set of glass double doors across from the elevator.

If you are visiting with heavy materials that need to be delivered by vehicle, please drive to the west side of the CERIA Building by driving around the west and then north sides of Building 24 (Earth and Planetary Sciences), and parking on the sidewalk immediately in front of the CERIA building. We will then direct you to the loading dock, or you may unload at the front doors. Please make arrangements in advance to deliver materials.
