The Art Museum of Los Gatos was founded in 1965. It is a non-collecting Art Museum that has six to eight exhibitions annually. Exhibitions include the work of local, national and international artists and has a strong interest in artists from the South Bay and Greater San Francisco Bay Area.

The Los Gatos Museum Art Gallery is the place to view art by local area artists. Visit often as the artwork changes. On Friday evenings, visitors may find a gallery artist hosting an “Evening with the Artist” featuring their work.

The History Museum of Los Gatos is located at the Forbes Mill Annex, a previous storage facility for wheat and flour built in 1880 by the Los Gatos Manufacturing Company. The annex was built for Forbes Mill, a flour mill built by James Alexander Forbes in 1855. The mill was the first building erected in what is now Los Gatos.
