Oakland Museums.
We hold more than fossils.

There are a variety of unique spaces to choose from in the building that houses Carnegie Music Hall, Carnegie Museum of Natural History and Carnegie Museum of Art. We can even open one of our world-class galleries for your guests! All of our rental fees include tables, chairs, custodial services, limited technical services, and entrance/gallery staffing (if applicable). We offer a non profit discount, and some spaces are subject to multi-space rental discounts. (Note: Suggested capacities are based on standard event settings. Events that require different space arrangements may lower the estimated capacity.)

*Discounts are not applicable to gallery fees. Galleries subject to food and beverage restrictions.
