The Randall Museum is more than just a natural history or science museum. Focusing on the cultures and environments of the San Francisco Bay Area, its integrated program of hands-on learning and recreation fosters a love of science, nature, and the arts. 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.
