Museum of Decorative Arts in downtown Santa Clara, occupies a cheerfully painted yellow 17th century building on the Southeast corner of Parque Vidal. There are no neon signs to signify its existence. Tourists hear of it by word of mouth.

The museum also has a hall for concerts and cultural activities making it one of the popular places in this historic albeit dusty college town of 200,000 residents.
