Triton Museum of Artis free. Robert Morgan and his wife June founded this museum
in 1965 in San Jose. Morgan was a wealthy rancher, lawyer and patron of
the arts. The museum was the first non-university art museum in the
County of Santa Clara. Less than two years later the museum moved to its
current address in Santa Clara. A new building was completed in
October, 1987, because of the huge population growth of Santa Clara
Valley in the 1970s. The new building has occupies an area of 22,000
square feet, and the building has high ceilings, pyramidal skylights and
dramatic lighting. The museum has exhibitions of artists who live in
the Greater Bay Area and has a very good educational program.
