Oakland Museum of California

OMCA brings together art, history, and natural science to tell the extraordinary stories of California’s natural landscapes, successive waves of migration, and unique culture of creativity and innovation.

The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) curates art, history, and natural science to tell extraordinary stories of California’s natural landscapes, human migration patterns, and its unique culture of creativity and innovation. With more than 1.9 million objects including seminal art works, historical artifacts, ethnographic objects, natural specimens, and photographs, 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.

The museum’s updates build on the founders’ multidisciplinary and civic-minded intent of improving integration of OMCA’s collections and programs, and creating new opportunities for visitor participation.
