UCR / California Museum of Photography is an off-campus department of the University of California, Riverside, Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences. Located in Downtown Riverside, the museum promotes understanding of photography and related media through collection, research, exhibition, and instruction.

UCR / CMP is vitally concerned with the intersection of photography, new imaging media and society. It is the museum's goal to empower the museum's visitor with an understanding of the critical role photography and related media have had in shaping both society and the daily lives of individuals. UCR/CMP provides a supportive and challenging environment that stimulates discourse about issues relevant to the lives and interests of artists, scholars and the general public.
