This is truly a great community based museum. It consistently features high quality exhibits, charges no admission, and offers classes. It is run by great people, including some art teachers from nearby Mission College. I think it is the right size too -- not so big that it overwhelms you with content. This museum is so great, I have even considered moving to Santa Clara just to be near this museum. It is refreshing to know that suburbs can have great museums too!
