The de Saisset Museum hosts a dynamic schedule of changing exhibitions. Temporary exhibitions at the de Saisset highlight the diversity of our community, address issues of contemporary society, showcase the work of under-recognized artists, and emphasize the strengths of our permanent collection. The museum also houses a permanent California history exhibition that focuses on the stories of Santa Clara Valley from pre-European contact through the Mission Period and up to the early days of Santa Clara College.
