a. Above and Below: Stories from our Changing Bay

b. Bay Motion: Capturing San Francisco Bay on Film

c. A Cinematic Study of of Fog in San Francisco

If you want to join a docent tour to learn even more about the museum, save 1:00 p.m. for the Architecture Tour,  2:00 p.m. for the Gallery of California Art Tour, or join the Gallery of California History Tour at 3:00 p.m..

While you move among the exhibits, you can make plans to have lunch at the Blue Oak cafe, and take home some memories and souvenirs from their OMCA Store.  

If tomorrow does not work for your schedule, you might plan to attend the regular Friday night event held at the museum.  Featured are family friendly activities with music, food trucks, live music and dance lessons.
