Enjoy talking about Museum exhibition themes and exploring how they relate to your life?
Gallery Activation Hours put a twist on the traditional museum tour. Using an informal approach, OMCA facilitators combine content knowledge with lived experience. Centering community voices and encouraging dialogue in our galleries provides meaningful and fresh interpretations of our Special Exhibitions.
Every third Sunday from 1 to 2 pm, OMCA invites visitors to Spotlight Sundays, a series of conversations, performances, and experiences that showcase California visionaries.
Spend your Sunday with us and find out why East Bay Express calls OMCA “the best museum for the people, by the people.” Every first Sunday of the month, enjoy admission to OMCA with a suggested donation of $5 for general admission. There is a $6 charge for special exhibitions in the Great Hall.
OMCA celebrates the Lunar New Year and explores the shared connections between the diverse Asian cultures of the Bay Area. These family-friendly programs will include both virtual and in-person offerings that celebrate and honor Lunar New Year traditions through storytelling, performances, activities, cooking demonstrations, and more. OMCA holds space for our AAPI communities to come together and uplift each other with both in-person and virtual healing circles.
In collaboration with OMCA’s Día de Muertos Volunteer Community Committee, we honor Day of the Dead every October and November.
