Plan Your Visit
SJMA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment to view art, and restricting large groups will help further this goal. We have temporarily cancelled group tours but invite you to watch exhibition and artist highlights made by SJMA docents and educators that you will find on gallery walls with QR codes.
Wheelchairs and strollers are available free of charge. Click here for complete information about Accessibility.
Enhanced Safety Measures
To ensure the safety of visitors, volunteers, docents, and staff, SJMA has devised an Enhanced Safety Measures plan that is compliant with Santa Clara County Health Department and CDC guidelines. Please review these changes before you visit and thank you for helping us make your Museum visit easy, enjoyable, and safe. We will carefully and continually monitor the efficacy of these guidelines in real time and make further adjustments as needed.
SJMA is pleased to offer free individual admission for youth 17 years and under, college students, and teachers with valid ID.
Thank you for your interest in visiting with a group, but at this time, SJMA cannot accommodate and will not accept groups of 10 or more. SJMA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment to view art, and restricting large groups will help further this goal.
