See the sights of San Francisco Bay from above on an air tour from the Hayward airport. As you fly through the sky on a 3-passenger plane with an experienced pilot, look down on attractions like Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and downtown San Francisco.

This museum is devoted to the history and art of California. So wait for a special expo that you want to see. And come on a Friday when the food trucks and music is outside in the early evening. This place is a gem.

Oakland and the East Bay are fortunate to have this terrific museum and cultural center. Always find thought-provoking exhibits and appreciate the commitment the Museum has made to bring culturally relevant special exhibitions to the community.

Went here while visiting Oakland, and was happy to catch the exhibit of art from Burning Man. There was also a nice Dorothea Lange exhibit. The museum has a large gallery of natural sciences exhibits and a gallery about the history of California. The art gallery also features California artists. There is a garden area which was closed when I was there, but there were a couple of sculptural pieces on display outside. There is also a small museum shop.

Just to see the Burning Man exhibit ("No Spectators"). A truly amazing exhibit which is definitely worth seeing. The California history section of the exhibit is fun, educational and interesting. It too is worth seeing. The museum itself is beautiful and the docent staff is friendly and informative.
