Be a part of what's new.
We must raise $250,000 to create NUMU. Thanks to your generous support we are $106,605 closer to meeting our goal! Your gift to this years’ annual fund will help bridge the gap, making it possible to expand, design and build our new space. In addition, gifts allow the development of new programming and interactive updates to our permanent exhibits. Your 100% tax deductible contribution will enable us to inspire our community with fresh, new perspectives on history, art and the innovation of our times as we enter our 50th Anniversary year. Help us to build a museum that continually hits the refresh button.

Our groundbreaking was a huge success, thank you to all that were able to come out and support the New Museum Los Gatos. It was great to have such a high level of community involvement. Thanks to photographer, Grant Atwell, there were many great moments captured, which you can see on our Facebook!
This is an exciting time to be a part of our Los Gatos Museums family. As we bid a fond farewell to our two quaint and treasured museums, we embrace a dynamic new space in the heart of our civic center. New Museum Los Gatos is slated to open in Spring 2015 with three times more exhibition space, allowing us to build a vibrant community hub for all ages, with fresh perspectives on bay area history, art and the innovation of our times. NUMU. Always something new.
Note: the Historic Home Tour has been postponed until April 11-12, 2015. It will expand to include beautiful gardens of Los Gatos. We hope to see you then!
