Cantor Arts Center

Cantor Arts Center 328 Lomita Drive (at Museum Way) 650-723-4177 Currently exhibiting art in 24 galleries, the Cantor Arts Center was established in tandem with the founding of the Stanford University itself. The Stanford family created the museum to display their personal collection of objects of art and cultural interest; now, the museum's collections are more impressive than ever.

The Center's galleries are devoted to a wide range of art spanning 4,000 years, from ancient Chinese ceramics to 19th century American drawings to contemporary sculptures. While at the Center, visitors should be sure to visit Stanford's outdoor sculptures: the Rodin Sculpture Garden, which houses one of the largest collection of Auguste Rodin sculptures outside of Paris, and the New Guinea Sculpture Garden.

Admission to the museum is free, and visitors can take advantage of docent tours, lectures, gallery talks, special events, the bookstore, and the cafe overlooking the sculpture gardens. Map of Campus Sculptures
