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.”

Excellent paintings! Home of the John Muir papers as well. The park in which the museum is set has free concerts. A bit of a walk from your car which could be tough for disabled.

The Hagin's a great place to take friends from out of town, lots of local history and knowledgeable docents. They also have a wonderful art show featuring art from local schools and a fantastic tea party in the spring! A real gem in Stockton.
