  • Parking can hold about 12 cars and free, most building are closed, so you'll be able to enter about 4 of 20 of them. Nice place to walk. Edit: I went back during the week and the site was open but all building closed. Still nice, but you can walk the whole site in 30 minutes.
  • Well worth a visit. It is Old San Jose buildings most (or all) having been moved to this site. To save them from "progress" (building tall anonymous concrete buildings).
