About the location:

Oakland Asian Cultural Center is located in the Pacific Renaissance Plaza. Upon arrival, please organize your group in a line in on the lower level of the courtyard. An AXIS staff member will be present to register your group and lead you to the auditorium.

While the courtyard is open to the public, please respect the residents that live in the plaza. Due to sound restrictions and limited space, we discourage schools from eating lunch in the courtyard. Lake Merritt is a short 10-15 minute walk away and offers a great location for a school picnic!
