Oakland Museum reopens

The Oakland Museum has just reopened after 2 years of renovation to the Art and History sections.   The natural history gallery is now closed for its turn at renovation.  The front has been relocated to Oak Street, as seen above.  The displays are well done, but I couldn't help wish the rich history of Oakland had a more prominent position in the telling of California history. That should not stop you from coming by for a visit.  You'll be glad you did.

FYI:  I'm on a 3-week trip.  My wi-fi is only occasionally allowing me to post pictures or leave comments.  Sorry about all this.

  5. This is so exciting! One of the first places I remember visiting when we first moved to SF. I saw an incredible exhibit called Quilts in Women's Lives. Back many times since. Can't wait to visit the newly refreshed space!
