“A treasure of a museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

You are on the huge Stanford Campus and this gem of a museum holds wonderful treasures....the Serra outdoor sculpture is a must and a great counter point to their incredible Rodin collection...the American Indian collection is phenomenal as is the Asian art galleries....where you could easily spend a whole day...But the most fun is the 2nd floor with contemporary art...easy to look and somewhat of a surprise.....

“Rodin Escape in The Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

GO! It's a small place but a great little detour while visiting the Stanford Campus or Palo Alto for business. Take an hour and walk the museum and have lunch at the cafe (which is excellent).

Wonder outside statures art., The inside is very informative and often has rotating exhibits. Here is where you find out the history of Leland Stanford!

“Fine museum at the university”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The permanent collections are worth a visit, but the temporary exhibits are the real draw. The museum is world-famed for its Rodin collection.
