The Randall Museum
is owned and operated
by the San Francisco
Recreation and Park Department

General Manager


If you haven't already seen it,
come view the San Francisco
Arts Commission and the
Randall Museum's installation
of Windswept, a wind-driven kinetic fa├žade by Charles Sowers.

Consisting of over 500 freely rotating directional arrows, Windswept transforms a blank wall into a large-scale observational instrument that reveals the complex interactions between the wind and the environment. The artwork was funded by the Art Enrichment monies generated by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s capital projects.

Riding the Rails

Come visit Riding the Rails,
the Museum's scale model
of a caboose. Children can
climb on it and pretend to be riding the rails. Also open
is an urban rail exhibit with models of San Francisco landmark buildings where visitors can guide model trains
on railroad tracks. Be sure to check out our relief passenger car with interactive panels about the Transcontinental Railway.  Riding the Rails is on permanent display in the lobby entrance of the Golden Gate Model Railroad.

After The Quake

Year-round, you can check out a full size replica of an earthquake refugee shack,
visit native California wild animals, and learn more about the wide variety of programs that the Randall Museum offers at the Creativity & Discovery exhibit.
