“Interesting”

It's been years since the last time I was there! Had an assignment for my art class. Got to learn the lay out of the museum, very interesting and entertaining! Various displays caught my attention.

“Afternoon Outing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The exhibits are always interesting here --usually emphasizing some facet of California culture or history. Worth a day trip when visiting the east bay. BART-close

“Locals - Learn about the place you live”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I really enjoy this museum. I visit different galleries on different visits. Love how they are reaching out to the local community. Off the Grid food trucks on Friday evenings is a great way to see your community and relax with local musicians. The museum is free that time. Support a local treasure.
