The San Jose Museum of Art is a great place to take the family. Besides their many permanent works such as their fabulous blown glass chandeliers and other sculpture, they also have some new media exhibits that seem to fascinate kids. Admission is reasonable and free for kids under 6. We also went on a docent led tour here recently that we really enjoyed.

We love going to the free kids art on Sundays. Designated Sundays offer children's art projects in relationship to the current showcased artist. The museum staff is very friendly and they know how to explain art concepts to children. We had a blast with clay and watercolor! Make sure you check it out.

We come here fairly often because it's free (donation suggested) and they have interesting exhibits. It is a nice mixture of modern art and somewhat traditional art. I'm more interested in the modern art, but the other stuff is okay. They switch their exhibits fairly often, so there's always something new to catch your eye. It's rarely crowded and it's an okay place to bring your kids as long as you can keep their hands off things. I think they allow strollers.

I am giving San Jose museum a 5-star not because it can compare with the likes of the SFMOMA or MOMA in New York in terms of their collection or size. However, the museum is free, not crowded, right in the middle of San Jose with easy access, and has a pretty good selection of many local artist. It's a great way to spend a few hours. Afterward, you're right in downtown with many restaurant choices.

Pros: Free admission, Relevant works, Comfortable

Even if contemporary art is "not your thing" try the cafe and store at SJMA. The cafe and museum store are little jewles set in downtown San Jose!

Pros: free, Beautiful building, trendy store

Editorial from

The Scene
SJMA is not large for a big-city museum, but the quality of the work on display is high. The museum operates partly out of a striking, 1892 post office building with a clock tower, and partly out of a modern building…
