Our museum is located on the campus of The Webb Schools, in Claremont California. The street address is:

Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology
1175 West Baseline Road
Claremont, California 91711
Phone: (909) 624-2798

From the 210 freeway, take the Towne Avenue exit and head north on Towne Avenue. When you reach the light for West Baseline Road (only a few hundred yards from the freeway exit), turn left (west). The campus/museum entrance will be on the right side (north side), a few hundred yards past the Towne/Baseline intersection.

For a Google map, click here. Some mapping programs may tell you to enter campus via Webb Canyon Road; this is incorrect, and you should use the main entrance to campus on Baseline Road.
