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.

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.

It's small and cute and...FREE!!!!! Right next to Santa Clara's City Hall and other buildings full of history. The museum itself houses three exhibit rooms that contains local artists' work. The galleries change every few months or so. The main room is by far the largest with a high ceiling and plenty of light coming through the windows. The walls... More
