Following completion of robust renovations in 2017, the Randall Museum features a STEM lab with state-of-the-art technological tools; a fully equipped woodworking studio; a natural sciences lab; art and ceramic studios; a toddler playroom; and permanent exhibits exploring ocean ecology, geology, and railroads, along with an extensive working model railroad. Dynamic habitat-based live animal enclosures house more than 100 creatures that can no longer survive in the wild, allowing museum visitors to interact with and learn about California’s diverse wildlife. Outdoor areas feature an observation deck, a small amphitheater, a kinetic wind sculpture, native plant gardens, a water catchment system, picnic spots, and easy access to hillside hiking trails in Corona Heights.
Ms. Randall intended the museum to be “… a place that would foster a love of science, natural history, and the arts.” As part of this continued mission, the Randall Museum provides free admission and free or low-cost hands-on learning experiences including exhibits, classes, summer camps, workshops, school field trips, and special events for children, teens, and adults.
