California History Docent Tours

The de Saisset offers guided tours of the permanent California History exhibition, Mission Santa Clara de Asís, and the nearby Mission Gardens. Geared primarily to fourth grade school groups, the tour focuses on the history of Santa Clara Valley from pre-contact to the Mission era. Using pictures, a hands-on touching cart, and historical objects, volunteer docents strive to bring the history of this area alive.

Modified tours are available for other school groups and adults. Advanced reservations are required. MORE »
