San Francisco’s free-of-charge nature and culture museum, located in Corona Heights Park, is reopening to the public on Saturday, October 2, 2021.

To celebrate the reopening of the Randall Museum, after 18 months of virtual programs and a summer of children’s camps, RePurposeful, The Art of Collage and Assemblage is on display in the museum’s lobby during regular hours, 10am – 5 pm, Tuesdays – Saturdays, beginning October 2, 2021. Admission is free.

“We are so excited to finally reopen to the general public with this new exhibition in partnership with SCRAP! SCRAP and the Randall both share a dedication to sustainability, arts education and accessibility,” said Tiffany Loewenberg, Randall Museum Friends’ executive director. “RePurposeful is a fun exhibit that inspires visitors of all ages to stretch their creative imagination, challenging them to see things in a new way and breathe new life into something that may otherwise have been discarded.”

Upon reopening in October 2021, the Randall Museum’s most popular exhibits will be open to the public, including the Live Animal Exhibit, the Oceans and Foundations Exhibits, and the very popular Riding the Rails Exhibit. “As we re-open the Randall’s doors to the public, we will carefully manage the museum’s capacity and require visitors to follow the SF Department of Public Health Covid protocols. Visitors will be required to show proof of vaccine (with the exception of children under 12),” added Loewenberg.  

For details about the re-opening of the Randall Museum, the new RePurposeful exhibition and fundraiser, as well as current Covid measures, please visit www.randallmuseum.org or call 415-554-9600.
