Take BART to Oakland Museum of California grand re-opening May 1-2

Celebrate with OMCA! The newly transformed Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) opens Saturday, May 1, with 31 hours of continuous, round-the-clock free programs and events.

The weekend promises non-stop entertainment, activities, and fun for visitors of all ages. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 1, with a Native American blessing, a marching band, Project Bandaloop, and more. Saturday evening and overnight activities take on a more adult flavor with dancing, food, a no-host bar, flashlight tours, and conversations on unique California topics-merging into early morning yoga.

And the non-stop celebration continues through 6 p.m. Sunday, May 2, with family-themed events all day. Sunday is especially for families with dancing, drumming, juggling, the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, and more. The new OMCA Store will be open the full 31 hours so visitors can shop throughout the event. And of course, the highlight of the 31 hours will be the excitement of discovering the story of California, the story of you, in the new Galleries of California Art and History.

Hours: 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 1 to 6 pm on Sunday, May 2
Getting There: OMCA is conveniently located one block from the the Lake Merritt BART station between 8th and 9th streets at Oak Street. OMCA is at the corner of 10th Street and Oak Street.
