“Nice museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Very interesting museum in downtown Oakland. Parking in the same building at a discount so we didn't have to look for parking. Well worth the admission charge.

“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
