Nice little museum

This is worth a visit just to see the Chihuily artwork, though it is viewable from the lobby, it's nice to see it from above. They rotate art works, so check their website if... read more

I love having a museum nearby and try to attend and check out the new exhibits a couple of times a year. Unfortunately the offerings I this museum are limited. I will be the first to say the more "advant guarde" focused artwork is often not my favorite. Many of the installations are not particularly interesting to me. My most... More

Not impress by the art. The staff is really nice. When I walked in very few people Erie there. The outside does not look like a museum at first but a church! The gift shop was lovely. The space is open and exhibits are given adequate rom to show off the art.

I tried to get into it but it just didn't work for me. The sequence of american indian vs indian in america was quite good. The rest of the India stuff was minimal and low quality. The blue cube was dumb. The city limits was ok but too minimal.

This museum is full of very unique and fun pieces. It is very affordable, especially as far as attractions in the city go, and it was just a great place to relax for an hour or so and take in the art.

We went to this museum as a fun activity to celebrate El Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The museum has a lot of different pieces of artwork, including a giant skeleton, a paperclip design, and some works by famous artists. The museum also has a cafe and a gift store. There is a basement, but there isn't... More

This is worth a visit just to see the Chihuily artwork, though it is viewable from the lobby, it's nice to see it from above. They rotate art works, so check their website if your picky about what you want to see. Admission is very reasonable. They have a very nice gift shop and the café has really good food.

Had a great experience at the San Jose Museum Of Art. All of the stuff were so friendly and nice. The exhibits were very interesting and provided a wide variety of art for my family to view.

My friend and I were walking around San Jose and decided to stop in here. It look us about 45 minutes to walk around the entire place. It's interesting and worth a quick stop in. You do have to pay to get in, so if you love art, spend the money, if you don't, then I don't suggest this place... More

I had a long lunch free and popped into this museum. I had a nice, leisurely time strolling through the 2 floors of exhibits. Very well set arranged and relaxing.
