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. —
With more than 1.9 million objects, OMCA brings together our multidisciplinary collections of art, history, and natural science, all within our 110,000 square feet of gallery space and seven-acre campus. —
OMCA is a leading cultural institution of the Bay Area and a resource for the research and understanding of California’s dynamic cultural and environmental heritage for visitors from the region, the state, and around the world.
