I admit this is my home town. But seeing the Crocker expand to a truly wonderful museum over the years has been like visiting several museums under one roof. The revolving exhibits are great, but it is the permanent collection that is the heart and...More

The museum is a nice place to go to in Sacramento. Smaller than I thought, but it was sufficient enough. Parking is super easy. I would recommend making a stop.

I recently visited the museum for the first time. The permanent pieces are very impressive and the temporary exhibitions were wonderful. The museum's location is easily accessible and the court yard is a nice respite.

Enjoyed the art and the way it was displayed. Went with my daughter and they offer discounts for students which was nice. Not sure how often they change the paintings but we will go back again.

The museum is fantastic. The architecture of the old house is beautiful. It has a lot of lovely painting but the best by far is the modern art. It has some wonderful exhibits. There are a few large pieces that should be visited in person....More

We enjoy walking to the Crocker often, and enjoying their varying selection of masterpieces. In 2010, an expansion to the original historic building tripled the size!! The permanent collection is outstanding, and the rotating shows are not to be missed. Unlike other museums, you can...More
