The Johnson Museum offers a variety of services for Cornell alumni. In addition to special tours and exhibits for Reunion, we regularly present exhibitions of alumni collections. Our director and curators hold talks and tours with alumni groups across the country and abroad. Museum staff organize and present classes as part of Cornell's Adult University (CAU) as well.
