OMA IS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR YOUR SPECIAL EVENT!
Thank you for your interest in hosting your next meeting or celebration at Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA).
Picture your event as a masterpiece at OMA. Our Orchid Award-winning Central Pavilion by Frederick Fisher offers a sleek, contemporary setting to welcome any event décor. Its stunning façade with retractable glass doors allows for flexible use of space. The historic Irving Gill-designed wing is a National Historic Landmark Building created in the Mission Revival style. OMA is a nonprofit regional art museum producing exhibitions and programs that elevate the spirit, stimulate thought, and ignite the imagination.
A short walk from the ocean and pier, steps from Oceanside’s Civic Center and the heart of Downtown, OMA is the perfect venue for your next event. The museum is available for weddings, elegant dinners, holiday events, business meetings, receptions, concerts and more.
The museum campus is comprised of two architectural jewels; a classic Irving Gill designed building that represents the flavor of Southern California in the 1930s, and the stunning Central Pavilion completed in 2008, designed by Modernist architect Frederick Fisher. Within the building, the Central Pavilion First Floor Lobby, Biogen Terrace, adjoining galleries, and Second Floor Gallery/ Auditorium offer unique settings for many events.
Our facility allows you to customize your event based on your vision and budget, with no limits or requirements on vendors. All pricing includes the use of the museum’s catering kitchen for staging and prep.
