    With breezy open-air walkways, multi-tiered garden terraces, and ample lawn space—a favorite spot for Friday Nights @ OMCA families with kids and museum visitors, the Oakland Museum of California is a truly Californian building, inside and out. If you’re looking for things to do in Oakland during summer, you could easily spend a full day outside at OMCA. Stop by our new vegetable garden when you do!
