Breeding ground for Silicon Valley businesses. The founders of Hewlett Packard, Yahoo!, and Sun Microsystems all passed through the doors of this institution.
Wonderful campus, easy and relaxing to walk around. I went up in the Hoover Tower, where you can see the entire campus! It was beautiful and pleasant!

Massive space upstairs perfect for meetings and conferences as they have many large spaces. The food was fantastic and the building modern. Looked briefly downstairs on the museum and it looked to be very interesting and informative if you’re technoor technology inclined.

This was a short stop on our way to San Jowe. The garden is wonderful. It is clean & family freindly. The adjacent parking lots are free in the summer do look online. We took about 25 minutes to view everything and read the descriptions. Many of the larger sculptures are larger versions of parts of the "Gates of Hell" Installation. They also have sculptures of the Burghars of Calais. Wonderful history of art that is a cceasable to the public.
Thank you Standford!

The Center presents a wide selection of art in 24 galleries, plus outdoor gardens, courtyards, and terraces. The Center's collection spans 5000 years and ranges from ancient China to the 21st century.
We visited the Cantor mainly to see the Rodin exhibit, but also enjoyed the exhibition of oriental pottery. The museum is easy to navigate and admission is free. The Rodin exhibit includes models and smaller works inside, with the full-scale pieces in the garden a la Musee Rodin. It is quite a nice collection that gives you a good feel for Rodin’s body of work. After enjoying the exhibits we had a late lunch at the museum’s Cool Cafe, which features a nice variety of house made soups, fresh salads and sandwiches. Parking (paid) is available adjacent to the museum.

I love this theater although it apparently is in danger of closing. It has old time charm and beautiful frescos on the walls. Afternoon movies are a bargain at $7 (Monday-Thursdays before 6 pm). Lots of artsie movies show here but also some main stream. Parking can be a challenge but worth it.

WOW. What a treat. This is an amazing collection that changes on a regular basis. Large, modern art is wonderfully displayed in new building custom built to house the collection.
Don't miss the short video about the Anderson's. It's at 5 - 7 min. long and very interesting and informative.
I will try to go every time I'm in the Palo Alto area - it's that good.
If you do not appreciate or enjoy modern art - this is would not be for you. If you do enjoy modern art this is a MUST SEE collection.

The Stanford Theater is a classical independent movie theater, located on University avenue, Palo Alto, which did show all kinds of movies until it was restored and transformed into a classic Hollywood movie theater in 1989 by David Packard, who aimed to bringing back the movie-going experience of Hollywood's Golden Age, which includes a live organ recital at the beginning and end of the films. “The magic of the movies depends on a larger-than-life image and the shared reactions of a large audience”. Ticket prices are reasonable compared to other theaters but the schedule changes quite rapidly - you can see different films and old favorites every 3-4 days. The theater has a stunning entrance and was built in the 1920s as a movie palace styled in neoclassical Persian and Moorish architecture. Simply an oasis of style and calm amid the bustle of modern life – I just wish the popcorn could be banned – both smelly and noisy!!

took some teenagers here a few days ago and couldn't get them out. they were so engaged trying to figure out how things work. I would have liked to know that as well...
We used to shop at the Stanford Shopping Center...when it was quite unique, smaller and had fewer chains. It is much more upscale and you see lots of families slogging through the mall...parking can be a pain.
