Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology
The Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology located on the Webb Schools Campus in Claremont features two circular exhibit areas totaling 4,000 square feet and monthly opportunities to meet and talk with real paleontologists.
The Hall of Footprints
This exhibition showcases one of the museum’s most important holdings, a unique fossil track and trackway collection that is among the largest of its kind in the United States. Visitors can see the inner workings of a paleontology museum, the fossil preparation lab and a collections storage room through windows cut into the walls.
The Hall of Life
The hall inspires visitors to seek a deep appreciation of their place in the history of the planet, challenging them with a fundamental question: “What are you going to do with your moment of time?” showcasing the Earth’s 4.6 billion year old history. Design highlights include wall-size murals showing ancient environments and a time line depicting important episodes in the history of life.
Monthly Discovery Days are offered with different themes each month. To learn more about these events and other upcoming events, visit their calendar.
Admission is free for children 4 and under.
