We invite you to visit La Sierra’s distinguished Centers, which include:

The Stahl Center

The Stahl Center and Museum of World Culture offers displays and revolving exhibits concerning global cultures and issues of social justice. It furthers the vision of Ana and Fernando Stahl, missionaries who shared their lives with the peoples of the Amazon and the Altiplano in Peru and Bolivia. The Stahl Center sponsors study tours and service projects around the world. The museum is located on the second level of La Sierra Hall, at the west side of the central mall of the campus. 


Wednesdays 9 am-3 pm, or by appointment. Call 951.785.2041 or 951.785.2999.

Archaeology Center

La Sierra University has a long and active history in biblical archaeology. Today, the university owns a large collection of biblical-era artifacts including hundreds of lamps, cooking pots, storage jars, and other pieces. Most of the accumulated artifacts date to 1200 B.C., the time of the Old Testament judges. Other Umayri artifacts range from as far back as 3000 B.C.
