School Field Trips
Beginning Fall 2021, the Randall Museum will offer both onsite and virtual Field Trips!
The Randall is perched almost on top of the Corona Heights hill, offering majestic views of San Francisco, the bay and East Bay cities! There is plenty of open space to have an outside lunch or go for a hike. Don’t forget about the States Street playground just below the museum for afternoon activities.
