The Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology expands knowledge of the history of life and inspires a sense of our moment in time through scientific research, exploration, and educational programming.
The Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology, located on the campus of The Webb Schools, is the only nationally accredited museum in the USA on a high school campus. Also, the Alf Museum provides a unique research program for Webb students where they study fossils they find on collecting trips and publish the results of their research in collaboration with museum staff, a unique program for secondary school students only offered at Webb.
Over 20,000 visitors a year find their way to the Alf Museum. The museum has two circular exhibit areas totaling 4,000 square feet: the Hall of Footprints and the Hall of Life, totalling 4,000 square feet of space.
The Alf Museum collection was started in 1936 with Dr. Raymond Alf's discovery of a new genus of peccary (pig relative) in Barstow, California. Since then, our collection has grown to approximately 200,000 fossil specimens from invertebrate snails to Cretaceous dinosaurs.
