Stevenson in our Community

A vital part of RLSM’s mission is to share and promote Robert Louis Stevenson’s legacy. To do this we have created a variety of ways in which the community can experience Stevenson beyond just visiting us! 

Whether you’re interested in having a presentation to your club or want to gain experience by volunteering, there are many ways to enjoy the Stevenson legacy. 

Offsite Lectures

The Robert Louis Stevenson Museum is happy to be a guest speaker at your club, organization, or group. Currently we have four prepared lectures which are richly-illustrated and customizable to your event. 

Just let us know what your group is interested in and how long the presentation should be and we will create custom experience for you. 

Classroom Presentations

Would you like your class to experience the RLS Legacy but are unable to visit the museum for a field trip? 

Well you’re in luck. The RLSM will happily work with you to have a staff member or trained docent bring hands-on learning to your classroom – FOR FREE. 

Just contact us to discuss how we can best fit in with your teaching plans. 


Are you interested in getting more involved at the RLSM? There is no better way than to volunteer! No talent is too small when sharing the story of Stevenson! 

We have volunteer opportunities for docents, programming, and fundraising! All volunteers are thoroughly trained and we will work with your schedule. 

Volunteering is a two-way street and RLSM endeavors to always provide a fun, fulfilling, and educational opportunity for those generous enough to lend us their time and talent!

Volunteers are welcome from age 15 and up!

Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a volunteer!

Community Event Participants

St. Helena Harvest Festival

Check out the RLSM tent at our local celebration in October! The annual fall festival gives locals and visitors the chance to learn about the museum – even if they’ve never been! And don’t miss the pet parade and walk-a-thon! 

Northern California Pirate Festival, Vallejo

Held every Father’s Day weekend (June), this is the largest gathering of pirates west of the Mississippi. Come join the fun by visiting our pop-up museum while you’re there! You can also volunteer to man the booth and get into the festival for free! 

Scottish Highland Gathering & Games, Pleasanton

Held every Labor Day weekend, the Scottish Highland games are an international competition for athletes and a celebration of Scottish heritage. Beginning in 1866 the festival attracts fans as well as amateur and professional athletes from all over the world. 

Be sure to find the RLSM tent in the Clans area with the St. Andrew’s Society of San Francisco!
