Oakland Museum Of California, Oakland Reviews

  • This place was fantastic. The different exhibits and how they were put together was extremely interesting. This is much different than most museums where they just have things on display that you walk for hours and just 'look'. This museum is interactive, it's made so you feel like you're in that era, and as you walk through the museum you move through different eras. It also covers other sides of history that aren't typically talked about in US History.

  • Tons of interesting things to look at. You can learn about the history, science, and art of the city, region and the state all in one place. While I was there they had "Respect" a hip hop exhibit which was great. We went expecting to spend an hour or so and managed to spend four. There are also great sculptures outside and the architecture is fun and well thought out.

  • Fun place to go if you like less crowded places other than the city. Good place to meet people have fun. Bring a good date, maybe even have cool events like an ice cream social or cool kids activities. Be nice if they could either expand more or host cool outside events there to it can have so much great potential there and the city of Oakland itself can as well to.

  • Very cool! Lot's of really neat displays. Three floors in fact! On the first Sunday of each month it is free with a suggested donation. All the displays are well built and thought out. A very cool museum showing the history of California. A nice lazy stroll here is great for a Sunday afternoon!

  • Salsa dance lessons! DJ..Live band.cool diverse crowd. Fine artists. Food trucks. AND THE OAKLAND MUSEUM! Nice way to start a weekend! 🍉💜🍉
