The Haggin Museum, an art and history museum, has been referred to by Sunset magazine as “one of the undersung gems of California.” The art collection features works by noted 19th-century painters Albert Bierstadt, Rosa Bonheur, and William-Adolphe Bouguereau, along with many other American and European artists. The history displays focus on this area’s past and residents, including Charles Weber, Stockton’s founder; Benjamin Holt, inventor of the Caterpillar tractor; and Tillie Lewis, the “Tomato Queen.”

Have visited the Haggin numerous times, it is a museum with a wealth of inspiration and insight on California's, and STOCKTON's early to current history. Their native American exhibits are exceptional. The art of the Haggin makes it an usual and outstanding experience.

My daughter and I had a free afternoon and visited the Haggin Museum together on a Saturday afternoon. Having just come from the Crocker Art Museum, the Haggin was a stark contrast on many fronts -- but it is a bit unfair of a comparison....More
