Free on the Stanford University campus. Right next door to the Cantor Museum. Go to both and don't miss the Rhodin sculpture garden outside. If you are not in to modern art, esp Northern California modern art, you probably won't like much of the Anderson...More

This is an excellent museum with a special showing by Nick Cave. His exhibit is until August 14, 2017. Great imagination and exciting design fill every one of his works. Many other great pieces of art are exhibited as well.
