Triton Museum of Art

South Bay



This contemporary museum, with its 4 art galleries, is the perfect venue for elegant receptions, galas and banquets. The stunning curved glass wall allows for the beauty of our sculpture garden and redwood grove to serve as a natural canvas for your guests to dine and dance among the art of acclaimed Bay Area artists.
Our single level art galleries are structurally spacious to accommodate both wedding ceremonies, receptions, galas, dinners and professional presentation. Whether a formal sit~down dinner of 20 to 150 seated guest, or larger cocktail style events, these galleries will provide a unique venue filled with creativity your guest will enjoy until late into the evening. Looking for an outdoor option to include with the museum? This is the perfect location to celebrate your vows. Under the canopy of redwoods, next to a sculpture garden, or in front of our historical house, create the perfect backdrop for your photos to capture your special day. The green grass and tall trees provide a warm natural outdoor setting while the indoor space, with large columns and floor to ceiling windows, is perfect to dance the night away. You and your guests will be treated to an evening they won't soon forget.
