OMCA Private Tour
On October 6, 2018, AMWA NorCal is covering the cost of admission to the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) and a private, docent-led tour of its Gallery of California Natural Sciences. We can then have lunch (at our own expense) and socialize and network.
We will meet at the OMCA ticketing desk at 10:45 AM. (Please note, this will be required to take advantage of the free museum admission and tour.) The tour will start at 11:00 and will last 45 minutes. Lunch will be at OMCA’s Blue Oak Café, which features dishes with “seasonal and local ingredients” reflective of “the many cultures California” and both indoor and outdoor seating. Afterwards, we could enjoy the OMCA, which is open until 6:00 PM that day, on our own.
So that we can focus on the tour and each other, please do not bring children.
The OMCA is located 1 block from the Lake Merritt BART station. Parking is available in the museum parking lot for museum visitors for $1/hour with validation and for $3/hour without validation.
Please sign up using Eventbrite by September 20, 2018, as the museum requires an attendee count 2 weeks before the event.
Should you have any questions, please contact Sandra Ruhl ([email protected]).
We look forward to your attending!
