The Alf Museum remains closed to the public until further notice due to COVID-19. While LA County has entered Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery, The Webb Schools and the Alf Museum are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and have chosen to remain closed in consideration of our students, staff, and Webb community.
