The Museum is Closed. We hope to reopen soon!

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.

Webstite Title 3
Christmas Train

The Museum can’t let this year go by without having model trains! This holiday season they will be combined with our ever popular Christmas Memories exhibit.

 

The 2020 holiday exhibit will bring several favorites back to the Museum.  Model trains, including the Polar Express and Christmas trains, will appear.  These are a delight to observe for young and old.   Models of local historical buildings will be set up, including the Tassajara School, Danville Hotel, San Ramon General Store and SP Railroad Depot.  New this year is a model of the New England Presbyterian Church which sat on Front Street from 1875 until it burned down in 1932. There will also be a display of rocking horses.

 

Christmas will be celebrated with Santa and his reindeer sailing around the ceiling, and a moving Ferris wheel and carousel. The Oak Tree Lighting will be honored with the Father Christmas outfit which was worn by Carmine DeVivi  who was the original Father Christmas.
