The Randall Museum’s transformation is almost complete. Its much-loved but dated interior is now open and full of light. A new Redwood Trail leads visitors from the main floor to lower level, which houses wonderful new geology/seismology and ocean exhibits. The new “Garage” STEAM lab contains state-of-the-art equipment for dynamic programming. Enjoy this sneak peek, then tour the revitalized Randall during its grand reopening celebration (details to follow).

What is the Randall Museum?
The Randall Museum is a natural history museum, science museum and arts center in one, offering hands-on learning through exhibits and classes in science, nature and art to all ages. The museum has many fun things to do with kids and adults alike, including live animal encounters and drop-in activities.
The Randall Museum is proud to host a number of clubs covering a wide range of interests in science and the arts, as well as occasional lecture series, one-time talks and special presentations. Most are free and open to the general public. None require a scientific or artistic background to appreciate and enjoy.
Located atop Corona Heights, near the geographical center of San Francisco, The Randall Museum is a perfect event space. With city and bay views, the museum is ideal for weddings, birthday parties, corporate meetings, and other gatherings.
Café Josephine offers delicious, healthy, locally-sourced snacks, sandwiches, and salads, along with a full complement of beverages. Enjoy a cup of coffee and pastry on the Randall’s east terrace in the morning, or a sandwich with friends in the Randall’s new front lawn seating area in the afternoon.
Open 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Classes include woodshop, art, science, and other STEM courses for children, teens, and adults. Exhibits display live animals in their habitats, oceans, earthquakes, and model trains.
