Carnegie Museum’s Oakland campus has two dining facilities and an outdoor seating area, so guests are welcome to enjoy our cafes or bring their own lunch to enjoy in the sculpture garden or in the cafeteria. No food or drink is permitted in the exhibition halls.
Both Cafe Carnegie and Fossil Fuels are closed due to COVID-19. There are take-out and outdoor dining options near the museum if you choose to have lunch during, before, or after your visit.
