Located on Stanford University's gorgeous campus, the Cantor Arts Center is one of Northern California's best-kept secrets: for starters, it has the largest collection of Rodin bronzes outside of Paris; its permanent collection has works of art dating from the contemporary to the 1200s, from every continent in the world; fascinating temporary exhibits are mounted throughout the year; there are regular docent tours; and it's free!

Cantor has an incredible art exhibit! I visited once while I was an undergrad with a few friends and was engrossed in some of the art. Its definitely a must stop if on campus

Great place to spend the afternoon. The museum is large but not massive. It offers a good mix of traditional, contemporary and world art. Has a huge collection of Rodin sculptures, including "The Thinker" and "The Gates of Hell." If you come with kids, head out back to the giant iron sculpture that you can run around inside.

An art museum is an art museum is an art museum. They have all sorts of collections, but definitely make sure to stop into the modern/contemporary art room upstairs. While a lot of pieces are permanent, they do rotate some new pieces in/out to keep things fresh. In addition to the everyday exhibits, they Cantor Arts Center also hosts an event one night a month where they stay open late, have performances on the lawn, and serve food and drinks.

A first-class museum of the visual arts. Rotating exhibitions on painters, photographers, sculptors, and artists in other media, as well as anthropological exhibitions on cultures as well as history of the Stanford family. Visited the 2007 Avedon exhibition 2 or 3 times. Well curated, excellent facilities. And, oh by the way, admission is always FREE!Recommended for:History Buffs

Everyone knows the Rodin sculpture garden, but you really have to go inside This museum has an extensive collection of art that rival many metropolitan museums. The collection covers the entire planet and goes up through modern art and includes a great a great collection of art from Oceania. The bast part is that it's free!

If she likes it, then I guess I like it.
Brought my home girl here way back when and she liked it. I have to admit that I could neither make heads nor tails out of most of what i saw. Yeah, there was a lot going on here that I was unsure about but all in all the facility was nice. The landscaping is beautiful and the exhibits were over all wonderful. There were a couple of things i did enjoy here and there. I would imagine that i enjoyed those particular ones because they had given me some insight in the development of next design i'm thinking up for my tattooist.
Inspiration can be found everywhere.
