This museum at Santa Clara University houses a nice collection of local/student artists as well as other art. There is a nice historic section on the Mission, with plenty of antique artifacts and the video montage exhibit in June was highly interesting.

Like: free admission. It's worth that Dislike: have yet to see enjoyable show. Museum is one room that rotates shows. Over 2 years of living near I have no seen a show that I liked. Gift shop way overpriced and dull

This is a wonderful find on the campus of Santa Clara University. If you are near or on campus, plan a visit to see a wide variety of art. Don't miss the Spanish Colonial exhibits on the lowest floor.

This is a great little gem that has some fascinating historical context for the town and mission of Santa Clara. The entire museum can be viewed and reviewed in 30-40 minutes.
