Spaces are extremely limited, so we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance. Tour groups are capped at 16 people to allow for social distancing on tours.

Historic Oakland Foundation is committed to following CDC public health guidelines. Masks will be required for all guests to enter the Museum Shop.  Vaccinated guests can remove their masks during a tour.
