The museum is honored to host Bill Clarkson the former mayor of San Ramon and noted local historian for an informative and entertaining virtual presentation on the Secret History of the City of San Ramon.

Learn about the only graveyard in San Ramon. Would you believe it dates from 1858?  Are you aware of a visible fault line in San Ramon or where the boundary oak is located? These and many more interesting facts and stories will be covered in Mayor Clarkson's virtual presentation.

The Museum of the San Ramon Valley is dedicated to preserving and celebrating our rich history and heritage. The collections and exhibits reflect our human experiences, institutions and cultures that were shaped by the valley's landscape, environment and early settlers.
The Valley's past is featured in a permanent exhibit that includes artifacts, an historical narrative frieze and pictures of historic buildings. The Museum collects, stores and protects artifacts from the San Ramon Valley. A Museum Store offers exciting gifts and remembrances for visitors.
In addition to a permanent exhibit on Valley history, the Museum sponsors revolving exhibits and several guided tours including the Alamo Cemetery and Old Town Danville.
School children are served with special Indian Life programs for fourth graders in the fall and the Tassajara One-Room School program for third graders in the spring. Classrooms are invited to tour the various exhibits.
