Play is critical to every child’s healthy development and the playroom offers something for everyone -from building materials and nature-themed puzzles to hands-on activities that spark creativity, wonder, and joy. Our youngest museum visitors can also discover the animals that make their homes in Oakland’s streams, hills, and backyards. The playspace gives families a fun, safe place to play, and to build community with other families.

Please review our Safe Community Guidelines before attending.
