Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology field trip

Field trip to Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology
Located on the campus of The Webb Schools, the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology is the only nationally accredited museum in the USA on a high school campus. The museum's two exhibit areas include the Hall of Footprints and the Hall of Life, totaling 4,000 square feet of paleontological discoveries!


The Hall of Footprints features a unique fossil trackway collection that is one of the largest of its kind in the United States. Highlighted specimens include the only known trackway of a bear-dog! Visitors are able to see paleontologists at work with fossil preparation lab and collections storage rooms through windows built into the walls. The Hall of Life tells the story of Earth's history through wall-sized murals of ancient habitats and a timeline representing vital episodes in the history of life. Divided into six sections, the Hall of Life gives each visitor a rundown of the museum's history, basic scientific principles, life forms from geologic times, and ending with student-staff exhibits.

Each guided group will receive a two-hour long tour of both exhibit halls while discussing the history of life. Groups will also watch a short film depicting a dinosaur discovery made by the museum.
