“For over sixty years, in its role as a cultural institution and resource for the community, the de Saisset has helped audiences make connections between disciplines and across cultures and experiences. The de Saisset continues to offer the SCU and greater community access to artists and artworks of both local and international scale through stunning exhibitions, dynamic public programming, and a growing public art program. We hope to stand as a visual reminder of the ingenuity, creativity, and innovation in all facets and disciplines across campus.” -Rebecca M. Schapp, Director

de Saisset Museum Collections Manager, Stephanie Battle, shares Japanese prints from the permanent collection with students in an SCU Art History class. 

The de Saisset Museum stands at the heart of Santa Clara University's campus, adjacent to Mission Santa Clara de Asís. Founded in 1955, it is the only free museum of art and history in the South Bay, and is one of only three museums in Silicon Valley to hold accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums.  As a center of lifelong learning, the de Saisset Museum supports Santa Clara University's goal of educating the whole person and consistently facilitates discovery, experience, and inspiration through engaging objects of art and history, dynamic public programming, and integrated educational opportunities for students and the wider community.

From student employee positions to course projects through University departments, SCU students are essential contributors to the quality programming and exhibitions offered by the de Saisset Museum. And programs and events such as the annual College Night, Family Day, and the Artist Lecture Series bring the SCU and wider communities together.  Our permanent exhibition California History and related tours serve more than 2,000 students and adults each year who come to the museum to learn about Mission Santa Clara de Asís and California History overall. And our growing Public Art program brings the work of accomplished sculptors to our campus for students, faculty, staff, and alumni to enjoy for years to come.
