Why did I receive a wristband instead of a Preview ticket?

The wristband is your Preview entrance ticket. With wristbands replacing paper tickets, you will not be admitted to Preview without a wristband. Fit it snugly to your left wrist and show it before you enter the warehouse. Once secured the wristband should not slip off your hand.

Can Preview wristbands/tickets be purchased in advance at the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA)?

Yes, please go to the OMCA Store on the 2nd floor of the OMCA at 1000 Oak Street, Oakland CA 94607. The store is open when the museum is open Wednesday through Sunday. You don’t need to buy a museum admission ticket to visit the store. As long as supplies last, Preview Sale wristbands/tickets can be purchased at the OMCA starting December 1, 2017 through January 27, 2018.
