“Specializing in art and artists of the West Coast, the San Jose Museum of Art is a popular tourist attraction for art lovers and cultural enthusiasts. Many of the exhibitions are devoted to California artists, but there is a growing interest in arts of the Pacific Rim. When you visit the museum, you can expect to witness a wide array of art that includes paintings, sculpture, photography, drawings, and much more. The museum is located downtown near The Tech Interactive and the Plaza de Caesar Chavez, so you can easily make a day of exploring these renowned San Jose attractions.”
