    While it isn't a huge museum, it's an excellent place to check out if you're nearby.

However, you will find an excellent DJ set, a welcoming crowd, and artwork that will delight and surprise you.

    Regular changing exhibits never fail to delight and educate. We return every few months to see the works of amazing artists in this small but well curated museum. A delightful, little known San Jose treasure!
