In addition to a permanent exhibition on Valley History, the Museum is sponsoring a number of revolving exhibits and guided tours, including the Alamo Cemetery and the Old Town of Danville.

School kids 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 take a tour of the various exhibitions.

Each fall, the San Ramon Valley Museum offers an Indian Life program to fourth graders who come to the museum to learn about the California Indians, the first people to settle the area thousands of years ago. It is a field trip tailored to the 4th grade standard for history and social science.

Fourth Graders, whose history and social studies focus on the state of California, learn how these early people lived in the mountains, river valleys, deserts and coasts, adapted to their physical environment and cultivated natural resources. At the museum, students have the opportunity to hear the creation of accounts, to see artifacts from prehistoric times, to pound acorns, and to play Indian games. Although the Indian Life program focuses on the fourth grade curriculum, the program accommodates and welcomes older students and adult groups who are interested in learning about California Indians.

Every spring, third graders from all over the San Ramon Valley have the opportunity to participate in a program of living history at the restored One Room School in the Tassajara Valley. The school marms and school masters are conducting an authentic 1888 school day. The school is located on 1650 Finley Road.

In a program designed by Mistress and former teacher Joan Kurtz, students use slates, learn to cipher, recite from the McGuffey Reader, and play games of the nineteenth century. They dress up in period clothes, tie their horses to the stable, and eat farm lunches.
