Fruitvale Tour
The Fruitvale tour travels from the Museum, through the old Clinton neighborhood, crosses over to the Embarcadero, then along the Embarcadero to Fruitvale Ave, up 35 th Ave to the Peralta House, then back through Jingletown and along East 12 th St. to the Museum.

Downtown Tour
Visit downtown locations that recall important figures from Oakland's history. Explore colorful characters and infamous murders. We’ll hear the story of Horace Carpentier and how he committed the most lucrative crime in Oakland's history! Discover architectural gems along the way. This fun adventure will cover about six flat miles over approximately two hours.

The Downtown Tour will be led by Oakland Public Library librarians. In addition, the tour will include a behind-the-scenes stop at the Oakland Main library. On this date, library cards will be offered for free for California residents.
