Don't forget to make time for some of the popular exhibition spaces nearby. Savor the quiet and relaxing atmosphere as you check out the unique collections at the Chabot Space and Science Center and the Judah L. Magnes Museum. The Oakland Aviation Museum and the Alameda Naval Air Museum are also worth a visit.

Featuring a wide range of scientific artifacts, models and displays, the Lawrence Hall of Science is worth visiting.

From the instant you step through the doors, it's obvious that the collections of the Robert Lowie Museum of Anthropology and the Essig Museum of Entomology are a labor of love. Gazing back from behind the glass, these fantastic specimens can't help but excite your curiosity. The University of California Museum of Paleontology and the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology are also well worth checking out.

Are you feeling inspired? Fill your day with art exhibits and wonderful creations at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.

Journey back through the mists of time to examine the informative exhibits at the Oakland Museum of California and the African American Museum.

To learn about the area's rich and fascinating past, consider visiting its many historic sites. Start your history lesson at the University of California - Berkeley and Mountain View Cemetery. You might also like to take a few photos at Pardee Home Museum and Dunsmuir House and Gardens.

Religion often offers a window into a destination's soul. Here, sacred sites such as Cathedral of Christ the Light and the Temple Sinai show us this region's spiritual side.

Before you pack your bags and head back home, ensure you stop by a few of Oakland's lesser-known attractions. Jack London Square and Berkeley Marina are some interesting options. Also, consider seeing the Doe Library and the St. George Spirits if you've got the time.
