If you enjoy visiting college campuses this is a must see. Lovely, impressive campus with mostly older, historic buildings. Check out the old bell tower in the center of the campus. For a couple of dollars you can ride an elevator to the top and be treated to expansive views of the town and the bay beyond - really special when the bells start to chime. We tried to visit the art museum but it was closed that day. Did get to see its brutalist concrete architecture - not my favorite modern style, but this building is a good example of the type. UC Berkeley is a must see if you are in the East Bay.
