Now California's third largest city, the self-proclaimed "capital of Silicon Valley" bustles with high-tech prosperity. In San Jose's revitalized downtown, stately old buildings mix with modern high-rises amid palm-lined plazas and avenues. Spread through the city are a number of unusual museums, from innovative new ones to "mysterious" older ones.
