  • The Triton Museum is a free local museum that highlights mainly local artists. The galleries are small and there is not a lot on display at once but the overall quality is decent and it's free. Definitely not worth coming here for a specific visit but worth taking a look if you happen to be in the area.
  • Triton Museum is a lovely building with well maintained grounds and out-buildings across Warburton from the Santa Clara City Hall. It is not owned or subsidized by the city. It is one of those rare gems that owns the property upon which it stands. As a consequence, it is a bit like Blanche DuBois - relying on the kindness of strangers, visitors, contributors, patrons of the arts, and likely some grants - in order to present the wonderful, interesting, educational, funky, intriguing, and fun exhibits it curates to the public. There is usually some class being offered - from drawing to art appreciation, as well as docent guided walks through the museum, coffee with the Curator one a month, the museum shop, and the information desk close to the entrance (help is always close!). Always cool inside on a hot day. Interesting acoustic properties in the rotunda. The cleanest bathrooms in the entire city! Courteous and respectul staff. Support the arts! Support your local museum! Have you gone there lately? Have you gone there at all? I bet your kids would love to go to the museum with you. Why don't you take them this weekend?
  • Nice park behind the museum. I really enjoyed the NFL set up they had during Superbowl 50.
  • This museum is free and open to the public they have new installations every 3 months
  • The first museum I visited and it's peaceful and beautiful. Well recommended.
