We walked from 20th street & Church. Very steep hills pushing a stroller. Google map was inaccurate resulting in need to back track. Needed hot water for a babies feed. Took at least 30 mins to access some with hungry baby waiting. As its a child's interactive museum such facilities were expected. A coffee/ kitchen bar would help mums.

I found the Randall by way of the now gone SF Free Civic Theatre Companywhich used to perform in the Museum theater. This small, FREE, natural history museum has lovely grounds, parking and amazing city views. Pack a picnic and come enjoy a meal and some fun for the kids!
