The museum tells stories of California and its people through a combination of art, history, and natural-science exhibitions. The Gallery of California Natural Sciences recently reopened and welcomes guests to explore more than 100,000 artifacts, including several thousand bird eggs and collections of reptiles, amphibians, fishes, and terrestrial and marine invertebrates. Other current exhibits include Summoning Ghosts, a survey of Chinese painter Hung Liu, and Inspiration Points: Masterpieces of California Landscape, featuring artwork by Ansel Adams, Thomas Hill, David Hockney, and many others.

Oakland Museum of California

California is too vast and diverse a state to capture through just one medium. That's why Oakland Museum of California combines art, history, and natural science collections—more than 1.8 million objects total—to tell the state’s story.

Organized around themes of land, people, and creativity, the art gallery showcases more than 70,000 works from the 19th century through present day, ranging from paintings and sculptures to new media. Encompassing more than 100,000 artifacts, including several thousand bird eggs, the natural sciences gallery spotlights seven particular landscapes, including Yosemite and Mount Shasta. The history gallery includes more than 2,200 objects that trace major periods in the state's history, tying together the lives of the indigenous people, incursions by Spanish settlers, and the giggling mad dash of the gold rush. In a nod to the history of Tinsel town, the interactive Creative Hollywood station lets visitors create an animation, add sound effects to movies, and forget a personal assistant’s birthday.

Forming the roof of each level, verdant gardens separate the galleries, while more greenery and sculptures beautify the museum's outdoor roof gardens and courtyards. The museum uses more outdoor space to hosts its Friday Nights @ OMCA, a family-friendly market full of live music, dance lessons, and local cuisine. Local and seasonal ingredients, meanwhile, flavor the dishes available in the museum's Blue Oak café. The café doubles as a residency for jazz bassist Ron Crotty, a founder of The Dave Brubeck Quartet, who grooves his way through jazz standards every Friday.

Customer Reviews

My friend and I enjoyed the museum displays and also ate a terrific lunch. It was a pleasant, relaxed afternoon. I also appreciated the brief guide, by one of the docents, through the new features of the museum upstairs. I do plan to go back!
