General admission is $16.00 please have the correct cash on hand to speed up the entrance process.
Parking: The entrance to the parking garage is on Oak Street between 10th and 12th streets. Parking fees are $3 per hour. Expect at least 2 hours for the parking garage.
The following credit cards are accepted in the OMCA Garage every day:
American Express, VISA, Mastercard, Discover, Diners Club International, and JCB.
Disabled parking stalls and entrance to the Museum are on the main street level of the garage. An entrance ramp is located on Oak Street (adjacent to the stairs), and at 10th and Fallon Street.
Art Collection Overview:
OMCA's art collection—one of the largest and most comprehensive holdings of California art in the world—grew out of the holdings of the Oakland Art Gallery, a museum dating back to 1916. The collection features over 70,000 works from the early 1800s to the present that are by California artists and that represent significant subject matter of the region. Featuring works of all disciplines, the collection includes painting, sculpture, photography, craft and decorative arts, conceptual work, and new media, as well as documentary materials such as artists' tools, maquettes, sketchbooks, scrapbooks, and other ephemera.
The collection is particularly strong in California landscape paintings from the 1850s to the 1880s; Gold Rush–era artwork and daguerreotypes; furniture and decorative arts from the Arts and Crafts period, including a large collection of painting, craft and decorative art, and furniture by Arthur and Lucia Mathews; Bay Area Figurative painting and sculpture; California ceramics and jewelry by Margaret De Patta.
Photography collections include Dorothea Lange's personal archive of approximately 25,000 negatives and over 10,000 prints dating from 1919 to 1965, as well as contact sheets, manuscripts, journals, correspondence, and field notes. Other large photographic collections include the Roger Sturtevant Collection, Joanne Leonard and Helen Nester Collections, along with a vast collection of significant California photographers. The Paul Chadbourne Mills Archive of California Art contains documentary materials related to thousands of painters, sculptors, printmakers, craftspeople, and photographers active in California during the past 200 years.
We leave the parking garage at 1:45pm heading for lunch.

Lunch 2:00pm at El Torito’s Restaurant 5 Monarch Bay Drive, San Leandro, CA. We will have 1 check for the entire meal & a 20% gratuity will be added to the final bill. Please bring cash for your meal.
This restaurant sits right next to the Bay. Sea gulls are around and are good at aiming their poop for just the right car or person.
