de Saisset Museum

South Bay's free museum of art and history

How to Get Here

PARKING ADVISORY:

On June 17, 2013, Santa Clara University closed Palm Drive, the main thoroughfare through campus, for a historic beautification project. The area will re-open after Labor Day 2013 as a pedestrian mall that will highlight the Mission as the centerpiece of campus. This change will affect parking. Upon visiting campus, please stop at the kiosk at the main entrance of the University for the latest information on parking availability. If you have a mobility issue, please let the Campus Safety Office on duty know so that he or she can direct you to appropriate parking.

More details on the closure of Palm Drive can be found here.
