what a beautiful place with a stunning new building as well as the historic mansion -- great place for lunch, but you can spend an entire day absorbing the fascinating exhibit rooms.

I love the legend explaining each object. Especially when they tell you what in particular you should be looking for. The California art and the ceramics collection are top-rate. The gift shop is impressive. This should be the number one activity in Sacramento.

Even if the current art exhibits do not interest you, there is still plenty to enjoy. The architecture is amazing and the permanent exhibits are wonderful. Plan on enjoying a nice lunch in their beautiful restaurant. If visiting Sacramento, Crocker would be a definite stop for art lovers. For those who live in Sacramento, go online to the museums' website... More

There is so much history and art in this place. Plan to spend at least 4 hours here. Dont miss the glass art displays in the rooms that overlook the entry.

The Crocker Art Museum recently added an entire new building to the existing museum. You've got to see it to believe it. The expansion allows the museum to exhibit more of their collection, bring in new collections, and simply add to eclectic vibe of downtown Sacramento. After touring the museum, go have a cappuccino at the restaurant. Sip, relax, enjoy... More

Attracts some very elegant shows. Always something fun to see or take part in. Big enough to take up a half day, small enough to keep you interested.

This was a larger and more sophisticated museum than I expected. There was a wide variety of genres and styles. Access to the old mansion made it even better. Highly recommended.

Spent an absolutely wonderful morning walking through the Crocker Art Museum. Beautiful presentation of beautiful art. An awesome display of the works of Sam Francis. Totally worth the $10 admission. They also have a nice gift shop and a couple of dining options.
