  • Small museum mainly dealing with contemporary art. The exterior of the building is very inviting but the collection inside is very limited unless there are special exhibits going on. Worth a visit if ...  more »
  • Some amazing exhibits. Saw a photography exhibit that was surprisingly creative and breathtaking. Don't miss this place if you are staying in downtown area.  more »
  • Always a pleasure to visit. Price can vary by featured exhibit. Great cafe and museum shop. In good weather, plaza is great place to eat. Close to light rail, Tech Museum, lots of restaurants.  more »

  • Maybe a little small, but overall, I really enjoyed the expositions there. And there are minimal disturbances, which allowed me to connect with the work of art and understand it. Bear in mind, some expos have a "no photos" policy, while some other do allow pictures to be taken. You can, however, carry a blank paper to all expos, as a tool to sketch the piece of art or write you thoughts it. It all depends on the artist. They have student discounts, children, and senior discounts. Don't hesitate to ask, you'll save a few bucks.
  • I loved it. I really enjoyed my resent visit to the art museum. Don't know when was my last visit to any museum. The tour guide was awesome. It was all free. She was informative and interactive. Stuff available there is also amazing. Good for kids n adults to get inspired. My son (7) was super happy there.
  • Small museum featuring more of "contemporary" art, so clearly not for everyone. Worth a short visit and has a cafeteria for a quick bite. It is also easy to get to using public transportation. Not a must visit with so many other choices in the Bay area. In San Jose time is better spent at the Tech museum even if you are not a fan of science and technology.
  • Small, but perfect for a rainy day outing. Easy and fast walk from the parking garage next door. Coffee shop inside with several eateries to spend the afternoon in the plaza
  • Compact but fun museum. Area for kids to do some art work, so good for families. No dedicated parking so find public parking.
