This is a real asset to our community. We recently took in the Toulouse Lautrec . It was a nice collection of his works. Always enjoy exhibits at the Crocker. It is a first class art gallery. We're glad to claim it as one of the crown jewels of Sacramento. Well done Crocker!

There were wonderful exhibits to see and learn from including the museum itself which is partly in the Crocker mansion. Don't forget the cafe. They serve a delicious lunch. Parking was great although we went on a weekday.

Lots of beautiful artwork. Many pieces from Mr. Sutter and wife who spend many months abroad in search of artwork that they subsequently purchased and brought to their home in California

Wonderful place to experience art. Their layout is very friendly for the modern half of the museum space. Where the buildings connect and you venture to the Crocker Mansion it can get a little confusing. If you're flying into SMF and need a ride with UBER you'll have to put your pick-up destination at the intersection of Airport Blvd and... More

Crocker offers a variety of art for the choosiest visitor. From the architecture of the site itself to the pieces on display, this visit is well worth a few hours of leisurely contemplation.

My granddaughter and I both enjoyed this museum! This is a beautiful museum and has a wide variety of art on display! We spent an enjoyable morning exploring and had a nice lunch at the Museum restaurant. The original Crocker building is such a beautiful building also! Well worth your time to stop and see some beautiful art!!!

While I miss the old Crocker (entry thru the original house), this is certainly a great update and provides a more accessible and "brighter" venue to the the exhibits that come through. The rooms display the art well and lots of roaming space for visitors. Lots of walking too! The cafe is rather pricey and not someplace I would stop... More

A nice variety of objects from African objects to European painting to pottery. Very nice gallery setting and the wing that was made from the Crocker Mansion is beautiful and worth a look on its own. Parking is convenient.

As most people said: great museum! Most of the art is by lesser-known artists, but overall it's still very good. If you're only familiar with the most famous artists, like Monet or Modigliani, this is a great place to find some new favorites. Each didactic (info card next to a piece of art) has four sections: title/artist/year/media, subject, artist bio,... More
