The Oakland Museum of California provides unique collections, exhibitions and educational opportunities designed to generate a broader and deeper understanding of and interest in California's environment, history, art and people. Museum programs are responsive, accessible and meaningful to the public, including school children, teachers, scholars, the immediate Oakland community, and an increasingly diverse California population.
Our mission is to connect communities to the cultural and environmental heritage of California. Through collections, exhibitions, education programs and public dialogue, we inspire people of allages and backgrounds to think creatively and critically about the natural, artistic and social forces that characterize our state and influence its relationship to the world.
