about Oakland Museum of California:
The Museum opened in 1969 and was immediately recognized as one of the more architecturally sophisticated museums in the Bay Area, with its three-tiered blend of spacious galleries, terraces, patios, sculpture gardens, and ponds. It offers a cafe and museum store, with many California titles as well as gifts, children's books and educational toys, and decorative items.
Classes & Family Programs: School tours and programs are offered in California art, history, and natural sciences. A variety of educational opportunities are available both at the museum and in the classroom. For an in-depth description of all available resources, call the Education Office at 510.238.3818.
The museum renovations are slated January, 2008 - May 2009, but the museum remains open for exhibitions, tours, public programs, annual festivals, and other public programs.
