San Jose Museum of Art
There is something for everyone at San Jose Museum of Art: contemporary art, lectures, concerts, tours, book signings, special events and even programs for children. The museum has been host to many outstanding traveling shows and has been a champion of local artists. The museum bookstore offers a nice selection of usual museum merchandise, such as books, tote bags and greeting cards. The museum cafe offers a wonderful rotating menu of seasonal delights.
This museum didn't impress us much. Modern/contemporary art? What ever floats your boat. Price (8 per adult) was alright if you enjoy seeing paint smeared on a canvas and named "untitled". The staff was very standoffish. If you absolutely love modern art, go for it! If you don't, well then you might not want to. Very accessible parking.
Now they charge $8 for adult and $5 for children. Total waste of money. No art at all unless you call a canvas-full of single color art (exhibit "color and space", in one fellow vistor's word, "no better than a paint sample"). They claim they are known for "contempory art":-) LOL. There are so many staff standing around and the best thing they do is to tell kids "no running" and "no touching". The so called "robot show" is a JOKE. If you realy want to see technology go the the Tech Museum. Want to get little kids busy go to the Children's discovery museum. Want to see some real art? Carmel or San Francisco. Definately not this museum.
I think it will be a better use of space and public/charity funding to convert it to something else. I can't believe this thing can survive for all this time.
