Th Oakland museum has a lot of different genre's of art going on. They have lots of contemporary pieces as well as a gallery that exhibits old and new stuff. I remember I saw a "Chuck Close" exhibit and I was absolutely amazed at how real that man could paint! When I saw the paintings I wasn't sue if they were photo's or what, but anyways, great place to go, especially if you're local.

A really interesting way to learn more about state history. With rotating exhibits, there's always something new here. They have special events like night time visiting hours and an annual Fungus Fair, where you'll see and learn more about mushrooms (and those that love them) than you could ever imagine.

You might as well go if you live in Oakland, but if you're a tourist, there's really not that much to see here. The exhibits all focus on California - history, science, arts - which in and of itself isn't a bad thing, but the exhibits aren't terribly exciting. A good museum is one that you want to re-visit at least once a year. The museum is well-kept (except the poor koi pond) and they do have visiting exhibits, so all is not lost.

PROS: It's a museum!
CONS: Not terribly exciting.

This museum is a real gem. The permanent collections (California artists, natural history of California, to name two), were, when we visited, bookended by several wonderful and diverse special exhibits. A great way to while away a Sunday.
