The newly remodeled Oakland Museum of California is celebrating with 2 days of free admission (May 1 + 2) and 31 hours of continuous events. The History and Art galleries are open while the Natural Sciences Gallery remains closed until spring 2012.
The Art Gallery includes pieces by Diebenkorn, Kos, and Bierdstadt – just to name a few. There are many photos by Dorothea Lange (the museum houses her archives).
The History Gallery is a great place for adults and kids. A wide variety of displays and artifacts from Native American culture to 2010 tell the story of California.
