Overview

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.”

If you're holding any doubt about whether this wonderful art/historical museum is worth a trip out from San Francisco or Sacramento, cast it aside. Just go! Its holdings are breathtaking, and the display and content of the works of art are as impressive as those...More

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.
