  • Childrens Discovery Museum
    In 2005, Roger Castillo's dog found a bone beside the Guadalupe River. But it wasn't just any bone—it was the skull of a young Columbian mammoth. Paleontologists from UC Berkeley's Museum of Paleontology joined Roger on the scene, where they excavated a thigh bone and the pelvis of the ancient creature. The fossils were assembled into a full-scale replica of the baby mammoth, affectionately named "Lupe," and moved into the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose. This happy accident became a permanent exhibit—and created a fitting unofficial mascot for an institution celebrating curiosity and wonder. Today, visitors can stop by the museum's Mammoth Discovery! hall to see Lupe's towering frame, housed alongside 20 other hands-on activities that spark the scientific minds of little visitors. This sense of exploration is at the core of the museum's 150 exhibits. And while it may be a while before kids discover their own extinct animals, the museum's 52,000 square feet help build foundations in math, science, and art. The colorful WaterWays room, for example, uses pulleys and tunnels to teach youngsters about the properties of rivers or flooded bathrooms, while the Rainbow Market helps kids learn more about healthy fruits and veggies. Most exhibits stay on permanent display, but the museum also hosts special exhibits and events throughout the year, such as interactive storytelling performances.

  • The Tech Museum of Innovation
    Its name may contain the word "museum," but The Tech Museum of Innovation prefers not to wallow in the past. Since its earliest days in 1978, it has exhibited the timeless principles of science while also celebrating the latest in technological achievement. In doing so, the institution inspires visitors to apply that same spirit of creative problem-solving to all aspects of life. Size: the mango-and-azure domed building fills 132,000 square feet with hundreds of interactive exhibits and six labs Hands-On Experiments: ride in a jet-pack chair worthy of NASA, feel what it's like to experience an earthquake, grow jellyfish DNA in a lab, learn about internet security in Cyber Detectives, and use wearable technology that measures physical and emotional states in Body Metrics. Eye-Catchers: the creations inside Social Robots, where visitors design and build robots before dressing them up in hats that a human could never pull off Permanent Mainstay: The Tech Awards Gallery, a showcase of past inventions and inventors from the museum's annual Tech Awards Don't Miss: The Tech Studio, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at the prototypes and fabrication of upcoming exhibits—and lets visitors be among the first to test them

  • San Jose Museum of Art
    Since 1969, the San Jose Museum of Art has acquired works that define the art of the time. Over the decades, that has included abstract paintings from the mid-20th century, sculptures from Bay Area artists, and new media works that echo the rise of Silicon Valley. Many have been drawn to the museum's artistic cause; in fact, more than 95% of the permanent collection has come from donations. Inside the Rotating Collection: Exhibitions include the immersive video and light installation Beta Space: Diana Thater (through September 13) and Covert Operations: Investigating the Known Unknowns (opens August 29), in which 13 international artists explore issues of surveillance and privacy in a post-9/11 world. Hands-On Activities: Visitor photography encouraged; free Art Packs filled with gallery activities; sketching and poem-writing activities The Building: a 19th-century library with a new wing added in 1991 to accommodate the growing collection Pro Tip: the museum stays open late (until 8 p.m.) on the third Thursday of every month Special Programs: free guided tours, artist interviews, and a kids' art camp
