The Haggin Museum is always an educational and cultural experience that is always changing some of their larger exhibits. There are also some permanent one that reflect the history of Stockton and the San Joaquin Valley. And they have a real Egyptian mummy!

This museum highlights a collection of fine art and the history of Stockton. It is the perfect size for everyone. The gift shop is one of the best places for cards and gifts. The first and third Thursday entertainment and snacks add to the visit. There is plenty to see even through the renovation currently under way.

I have lived in Stockton for 60 years. The Haggin musuem is still a place of interest and a nostalgic look back in time covering Stockton's past. As a young boy and now as an adult it stirs many pleasant memories.

Stockton's Haggin Museum is a hidden treasure not to be missed! The permanent collection holds items by Albert Bierstadt and other California artists, as well as statuary and ever-changing exhibits. The lower level holds a treasure trove of California and local history including artifacts from the founders of the Caterpillar Company. Don't miss this one!
