June 12 to September 27, 2019

Join us for a summer of discovery, exploration, and fun! OMCA's Summer Tours cover art, history, and natural science through groundbreaking exhibitions that tell the many stories of California and its people. In three extraordinary galleries, learn about the natural, artistic, and social forces that affect the state and investigate your own role in both its history and its future.

Bring your camp or summer school group for an exciting exploration of Oakland and California through Art, History, Natural Sciences, Special Exhibitions, and Self-Guided tours.
