Every day we continue to collect contemporary history documenting the social and political happenings in the Valley. We preserve a collection of more than 500,000 artifacts, including a Research Library and Archive used by a world-wide audience. We enrich the Valley’s cultural heritage by creating exhibitions featuring the collections; by engaging the community in hands-on family programs and events; and by offering award-winning standards-based school programs for over 20,000 students and their teachers each year.
The organization is supported by more than 270 volunteers and interns, and by a membership who values history and believes that by celebrating it we can create a community with a strong sense of place that respects cultural diversity and innovation. I invite you to explore the website and to re-discover Silicon Valley, and rediscover History San José by joining us.
