Even people in Claremont don't know about this hidden gem. It has a wonderful combination of interactive and elementary information for the beginner and more advanced information. It's well laid out, visually pleasant and very informative.

The students at The Webb Schools are fantastic. everything in the museum was found by the students. They recently made a discovery of a fossil never seen before. Very interactive space, kids love it.
