This museum is not named after that lovable alien character from the 80's sitcom, but after high school teacher and amateur paleontologist Raymond Alf. He began as a hobbyist in 1936 and with trip-after-trip into the Mojave Desert, Alf garnered a vast collection of fossils. The museum is located on the campus of The Webb Schools, a private high school founded by Thompson Webb and it is the only museum in the U.S. with its location at a prep school. There are two main exhibits, the Hall of Footprints which features some of the most varied fossil 'trackways' in the world and the Hall of Life that expounds upon the Earth's 4.5-billion year history.
Located at the base of the Jurupa Hills, the Mary Vagle Nature Center serves as an educational point-of-interest that highlights the Inland Empire's flora and fauna.

If you venture towards the top of the hills, the vantage point offers a superb view over the Inland Empire; it also provides a great place to have a picnic.
