NUMU Permanent Collection

NUMU collects works of art and historical artifacts that engage and expand an interest in the globally relevant arts and history of the Bay Area with a special focus on Los Gatos. 

NUMU's Collection is accessible to the public through: 

Rotating exhibitions including A Visible Journey in Time: Los Gatos History Project, trace the quirky histories that have shaped Los Gatos.

Appointments to view objects not on display are available for those interested in genealogy, art, Los Gatos history, or learning more about our Collection. 

Hands-on demos and behind-the-scenes access during public events allow visitors a glimpse at the process of collections care.
