We really enjoyed the beautiful art we saw. There is a lot of art there of different kinds. I especially enjoyed the pottery. I have been once and missed it once. I plan to go back.

Good collection, nice building and gift shop. The café was not appealing and the historical part of the museum could use more description about the architecture and features of the rooms and items in the rooms.

I go to the cafe at the Crocker for lunch from time to time. There is always a varied selection to choose from. The food is always good. It is very relaxing eating in a large and airy space.

walked through this museum on a week day - which meant very little traffic. Lots of California artist arts, modern and early 1900's, which were influenced by impressionism and large landscapes. Keep track of the floor plan - it can be hard to find your way to all the galleries.

A large art collection with many traveling exhibits located in one of the California Rail Baron's homes near downtown. You will enjoy the art and the architecture too.
