The Zoological Museum is associated with the University of Wisconsin Department of Zoology. The Museum provides support of zoological research within
the department, throughout the state and region, and nationally and internationally by collecting, curating, and managing collections of approximately 400,000
zoological specimens. The Museum consists of a 10,000 square-foot collections storage and research facility, the Molecular Systematics Laboratory, and a small exhibits gallery. The gallery is open to the public most weekdays, but access to the collections is restricted. Qualified researchers and students wishing to visit and/or use the collections must contact the registrar to make an appointment.
Its mammalogy collection (study skins, alcoholic specimens) includes 9,000 specimens. Its collection of marmots consists of 145 specimens representing 3 identified species of American Marmots.
