About Gallery Activation Hour

Gallery Activation Hour (GAH) puts a twist on the traditional museum tour. Using an informal approach, our GAH Facilitators combine content knowledge with lived experience. Centering community voice and encouraging dialogue in our galleries provides meaningful and  fresh interpretations of our Special Exhibitions.


Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) is committed to providing programs that are accessible, welcoming, and inclusive of our community. Wheelchairs, sensory inclusive devices, and additional amenities are available for checkout on a first come, first served basis at the Ticketing Desk. To request other accommodations, like American Sign Language (ASL), Cantonese, Spanish or another language interpreter, please email [email protected] at least three weeks before the event.
