In light of the new shelter-in-place recommendations extended through the end of May, the Oakland Museum of California will remain closed until further notice. We will continue to follow public health updates and provide information regarding the Museum's reopening date as we receive it.

The Museum has no known cases of the virus currently among its staff, visitors, or volunteers. We will be providing regular updates via the Museum website, social media, and email. If you have any immediate questions, please contact
