We visit here frequently. A small museum with some great things to see! My kids love going and there is a lot to learn here. You can spend an hour or a few hours. Up to you. We have done both and it is a fun little outing!

My kids and I came here for a birthday party and they had a great time. It was informative, fun and we even got cool hats to take home. The museum is the perfect size and I recommend it to anyone interested in paleontology

If you are interested in how the earth came to be as it is this small museum should be on your list of things to see in the Pomona Valley. It tells the story of life on this planet from long before the dinosaurs up through our recent Ice Age and to the present. The remarkable thing about this museum... More

A good way to spend time with the kids. Getting to know our past and realize how time has change. There is a $6 dollar fee to get in cash or check.

We visited this museum on a docent-guided tour and learned more than we could believe about this field. Excellent exhibits and stories. Good for the whole family, except very young children. Lots of hands-on exhibits to entertain all. A rare find.

Small but very interesting exhibit and, I believe, the only paleontological museum curated by a high school, The Webb Schools.

I went to the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology because it's just a few minutes from where I live, and I am a big fan of Natural History. This is a very small museum, located on a small campus of a private school, so don't expect too much. It took us about an hour to go through everything. I... More
