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.

Small art museum on the Santa Clara University campus. We especially enjoyed the California History section---mainly about the mission in the basement.

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.
