Beautiful museum with O.K. art

The building is gorgeous -- designed by a San Francisco architect (the staff person wasn't sure who). In back is a park and some sculpture. I'll post photos. The museum is... read more

The building is gorgeous -- designed by a San Francisco architect (the staff person wasn't sure who). In back is a park and some sculpture. I'll post photos. The museum is celebrating its 50th anniversary. (The building is newer.) The main exhibition was "50 artists to watch." Art was from regional artists; much of it wasn't the same class as... More

This is a small museum but I did find three interesting exhibitions which I enjoyed very much. One of them is with work of Charles Eckart which will be on view until the 19th April. The entree is free but you can leaf some money in the box. I did spend almost two hours there.

This place must have a pile of money in a trust because it is beautiful: the site, the building, the art, the shows, the programs, all are beautiful. The docents are very kind to children. The sculpture garden is located a 200 feet from a playground. Pack a lunch for the family and then head over this place any day... More

Triton Museum of Art is a free art museum, while it is relatively small, it has some impressive art pieces. There is a nice outdoor statue garden as well. I spent about 1/2 hour here to see the art displays and statue garden. There is also a gift shop at the museum. I parked for free on the street; there... More

When we moved to Santa Clara, we spent a few weekends visiting the area museums. We were very impressed with the Triton. The exhibit there at the time was wonderful and the gift shop was irresistible. Even the surrounding grounds and buildings were worth a browse. Overall, a very enjoyable afternoon.

I took my niece and nephew to the museum last week during their visit it was really nice. First of all, it's free, my kind of entertainment, but also, there is artwork from several different artist whom all have amazing talent. What was awesome was that my niece and nephew, even though they are young, 10 and 12 yrs old,... More

If you are in the area, check out the free Triton Museum. Art exhibits rotate and there are several art events a year in the park surrounding the museum.
