The Dr. Jose A. Solis Veterinary Anatomy Exhibit Hall, or Anatomy Museum, was conceptualized and envisioned for viewers to discover and appreciate the science of gross anatomy and embryology.It was named after the late anatomist and former faculty of the then Department of Veterinary Anatomy, Dr. Jose A. Solis.
The exhibit hall contains preserved specimens of selected terrestrial and aquatic animals, particularly skeletons, abnormal embryos or fetuses, and normal microscopic structures of some organs. In addition, the collection includes several mounted skeletons of domestic animals and bones which were transferred from the UP Diliman Campus when CVM moved to UP Los Baños in 1984. Additional equine foot exhibits were donated by former histologist and embryologist Dr. Cesario Zamora.
Currently, there are eleven (11) glass cabinets housing rare specimens, including those of fetuses and malformations. Mounted skeletons of a tiger, a dolphin, stuffed birds, and other anatomical specimens were recently acquired, one of which is the mounted skeleton of the Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi) donated by the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF). The skulls of the Philippine crocodile and the Palawan crocodile from the Palawan Wildlife Reserve Center will also be a part of the collection soon.
The Dr. Jose A. Solis Museum has been a popular site to visit for kindergarten, elementary, high school and University students from not just from neighboring schools but also those institutions located in nearby cities and towns. It is envisioned that an audiovisual, where visitors can view special videos of interest, will be placed adjacent to the Museum.
