Welcome to the Oakland Museum Garden

With the Kaiser Convention Center in the background

 The Oakland Museum reopened over the weekend. It is one of my favorite places as they are about California and the Bay Area. When they first opened in 1969 they were one of the first museums with a rooftop garden and during their COVID shutdown they redid it:







They still have the views:

The Alameda Superior Court Building

Lake Merritt

You can look down into the Koi Pond

And they have cool art in the Garden:









The Oakland Museum is still hip but they have made it hipper.

  8. Hey Dude, I was in Oakland once. I was 13 yrs. old & my brother was stationed there in the Navy. He was on the U.S.S. Mars. Cool, huh? hahahaha Anyway, hope you're having a great day., and I don't remember seeing this place when I was there, but it was a long time ago too! Be healthy & be safe! God bless!
