I run a Bay Area day camp and this is absolutely my favorite place to take kids for a field trip. The classes they teach to my group are incredibly engaging and educational. Our teacher/guide was Sara and I can't stress enough how good she is at her job. She is great is kids and if I were running a school i would probably try to snipe her! The museum itself is interesting and has plenty to offer for children and adults. Despite being quite a drive the Intel museum is an amazing place for groups.

I got married in March at the Triton Museum, and it was a wonderful event! We rented both the Jamison-Brown house (for getting ready) and the museum for the reception. Carmen, the facility rental manager for the museum, was very helpful and responsive throughout the planning process and let us know what kind of art would be on display for our expected timeframe. We held the ceremony outside facing the magnolia tree right at the end of the brick area between the two buildings.

Fun and free activity for kids (and adults too). Great place for a Saturday afternoon visit or Tuesday evening. Two huge model train layouts with trains running through all sorts of scenes and terrain. Lots of interesting railroad artifacts in the museum. Both days the museum is open offer lots of opportunities to see real trains in action too. The museum is right next to the tracks of the Santa Clara Train station, so you can see commuter, Amtrak, and occasional freight trains go by.
