The architecture and stained glass is amazing. We do not have many examples like this in the US, let alone in CA.

Toured this place with my kids for their school project then brought my GF's daughter here for an art class with an Artist teaching. Very cool place, love the wood work in the house.

The very best museum in Sacramento. Fabulous changing exhibits. I highly recommend the Crocker Art Museum. Good blending of Crocker Art Museum from the 1800's Gold Rush era to what's modern today.

The Yelland exhibition (fall 2018 through Jan 2019) is extraordinary. I didn't know anything about him, but loved the paintings. Very good early California painting collection. Lots of pottery, but much of it is recent. The original house is pretty well gutted on the interior....More

Sacramento has to be proud of this first class art museum. Wonderful facility that does a wonderful job of blending the old and the new. We visit every time we come to Davis from SoCal. Enjoy and support this wonderful treasure.

OK- Sac. is a capital city, and one expects a bit of largess in the art department. But the Crocker excels far beyond what I was expecting. A really significant collection of both contemporary and older Californian art, supplemented with Asian art, ceramics in spades,...More
