A great addition to the collection of other amazing attractions in Sacramento. It has attractions from as back as 200 BC to as recent as 2016. A must visit!

Visit the Crocker a couple times a year. Always something new to experience. Be sure to check out the gift shop. Lots of unique items - even for a local!

Great spot and a definite must see for Culture Freaks.

We spent about an hour and just saw the top floor which features modern American artists (from 1945 on). We took the elevator to the top floor and were greeted by giant locusts in a special exhibit "The Cycle". It was creepy and interesting and thought provoking all wrapped up in one package.

The rest of the floor presents a wide variety of modern American artists and a special showcase of California artists. After our group decided we were suffering from a bad case of museum leg, we worked our way down and breezed through some of the other exhibits and spent some time relaxing and contemplating the galleries in the historic building.

The museum is defiantly worth a more in depth visit.

Spent a few hours wandering through. Thoroughly the mix of contemporary and traditional works. Highlight was being allowed to photo woodwork of type seen in Stanford mansion. Did not know that Crocker was involved with Central Pacific Railroad.Huge pottery collection by Native American artists.

My husband and I go to the Crocker about every three months. It is great. We love the permanent collections and always find something new to focus on, but the rotating exhibits are always great. We especially like the old Crocker building part of it. It’s gorgeous and really interesting. It is mostly an adult place, but has some children’s things in the basement and some interesting questions for kids throughout. With kids find a weekend with special kids events to make it extra special.
