    de Saisset Museum

    The De Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University is the South Bay's free Museum of history and art. The 19,210 square-foot facility was founded adjacent to the Mission Santa Clara de Asis on the Santa Clara University campus in 1955, and is currently one of only two museums in the South Bay accredited by the American Association of Museums.

    The de Saisset Museum presents between six and twelve temporary exhibitions every year, featuring internationally generated exhibitions as well as traveling shows. Since it's founding the Museum's collections have expanded to include thousands of objects, including the de Saissets collection of Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, 19th century and modernist prints. The museum also has an extensive collection of contemporary prints.
