Historic Oaksterdam University

1900 Broadway, Oakland CA
The 1776 Broadway building itself is a landmark of cannabis history, hosting Oaksterdam University, the Prop 19 campaign headquarters, the Oaksterdam Cannabis Museum and is currently a cannabis retail shop.

The original Oaksterdam Cannabis Museum was located at the historic Oaksterdam University and Proposition 19 campaign headquarters at 19th and Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612., in the center of the Uptown Oakland District, formerly known as the Oaksterdam District, named for the OU campus at its heart.

After the Oaksterdam Raid, OU hosted the museum at its two subsequent campus locations. The original museum building was taken over by a licensed cannabis retailer. They kept the OU sign up for its tourist draw and its historic significance.

Oaksterdam University continues on as an online program. The Chris Conrad collection, formerly housed at the museum, needs sponsors, volunteers, contributors and donors to keep its collection current and find a new location.

Please do not call us with inquiries about the coffeeshop because we are not them.
