After two years and $9 million dollars of renovations, The Randall Museum reopened its doors on Sunday morning.
The museum, located in San Francisco’s Corona Heights neighborhood, will continue its focus on science and art exhibits for kids.
“This is a place to connect all of you to nature,” San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department general manager Phil Ginsburg told the dozens of kids and adults who came out for the reopening. “Welcome to our green world.”
The renovated museum is now home to a new STEM lab, an overhauled live animal exhibit and a cafe for parents tired of chasing their kids around the building.
State Sen. Scott Wiener called the museum one of San Francisco’s hidden jewels, but said after the retrofit, “more people are going to know about it.”
