Mostly photography exhibits, but very educational and very unique to see these artifacts from a controversial time in US history.

This is a large facility with not much to see, and most of the exhibits are about the Socialist agenda of the Town. We walked through 2/3 of it and then left because it was such a propaganda mill.

From Moon shots to Native American display to unusual artists, this museum is a real find. Autobiographies of the artists are included in the display.

We attended an event there which had a surprisingly large turnout. Impresed by the projects and programs geared to a wide population, including especially children. For anyone visiting. Los Gatos, worth some time.

This museum recently moved into the old library. The walls are exposed brick. The various displays are terrific. There are many programs being brought in for the public to enjoy. Some of the programs relate to the displays; some do not.

We wandered in there on a walk around town one day and found a new gem hidden next to the Library. Some of the exhibits expressed local relevance while others were historical and some interactive and modern. I think they'll be opening up the downstairs...More
