OMCA Updates

OMCA is Temporarily Closed 
Update: November 17, 2020

On Monday, November 16, Governor Gavin Newsom issued a statement indicating that several California counties, including Alameda County, have moved from the “Orange” Tier to the “Purple” Tier due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in the state. Due to this shift, the Oakland Museum of California’s plans to reopen on November 20 to Members and November 27 to the general public will now be postponed.  

We will continue to monitor the recommendations made by both Alameda County, CDC, and state health officials on a regular basis. OMCA staff and visitor safety remain a top priority, and we look forward to welcoming you back once we can safely do so. In the meantime, we hope that you continue to enjoy our OMCA at Home offerings.
