Extended Holiday Hours

Have guests in town over the holidays? Need help entertaining? Show off your Museum and come away with plenty to talk about together after your visit! Double win! OMCA stays open extra days this holiday season, so you can take advantage of all that the Museum has to offer.

Get everyone out of the house to visit popular special exhibition Nature’s Gift: Humans, Friends & the Unknown, the Days of the Dead exhibition Metamorphosis & Migration, the newly opened Take Root: Oakland Grows Food, the powerful video installation Question Bridge: Black Males, and our three galleries of California art, history, and natural science. Enjoy the view of Lake Merritt from the gardens, shop the OMCA Store, and grab a bite at the Blue Oak café. Plus, we've still got you covered for Friday night fun: from 5–9 pm on Fridays, enjoy half-price admission and a cash bar, plus Pop-up Store inside the Nature's Gift exhibition.
