Welcome to the San Jose Museum of Art, the American Association of Museums accredited facility that serves as 'Silicon Valley's leading institution dedicated to the art of our time'.

This museum features various revolving exhibits, from post-1980 works to older 20th-century works. The facility works to 'celebrate new ideas, stimulate creativity, and inspire connection', and does so through several different exhibit viewings, art-producing opportunities, and tours.

There are just about 2,500 modern and contemporary artworks in the permanent collection, including works from mediums such as ceramic, photography, new media, drawing, sculpture, and installation. There are also always 9-12 rotating exhibits each year with various themes, such as a current example 'Other Walks, Other Lives', featuring artwork exploring the different paths we all walk during life. Your group can walk through the museum on your own, join a guided tour, make your own art, shop the museum store, or dine at the onsite cafe, Cafe Too, while here. There are also regular special events and programs at the SJMA.
