Oakland Museum of California

OMCA inspires Californians to create a more vibrant future for themselves and their communities.

We explore the big ideas that shape California lives, then bring to life the untold and under-told stories of the people behind them—all with a distinctly Oakland point of view.

We are more than a museum. We’re a museum, garden, and gathering place. People of all ages and backgrounds come to OMCA, year-round and week after week, to be with the community and find connections through California art, history, and natural sciences.
