Convention and Cultural District
Downtown’s signature theaters and meeting spaces are all within steps of its top hotels in the Convention and Cultural district.
The Center for the Performing Arts hosts ballet, musical theater and concerts. The Nederlander Organization has joined with Team San Jose, the convention and visitors bureau hosts, to bring the aptly named Broadway San Jose to the city.
Nederlander also books hot acts to perform at the historic Civic Auditorium, which is Children’s Discovery Museum, home of an endless supply of interactive exhibits and fun for the little ones.
Museums also surround Plaza de Cesar Chavez, another green space in the heart of the city. Explore The Tech Museum and be stunned by IMAX films shown daily in the Hackworth dome.
The adjacent Parkside Hall contains precious traveling exhibits, such as Body Worlds and displays of Van Gogh’s masterpieces.
The San Jose Museum of Art features multiple exhibits, from Andy Warhol to Frieda Kahlo. The museum also offers everyone the opportunity to be creative and an artist in him or herself.
All off this is within a few moments walk of the city’s best hotels and restaurants:
