This is a really nice way to spend a couple of hours, interesting artwork but the pottery collection is really outstanding. It is housed in the mansion which itself is beautiful with wonderful carved wood cabinets, stairway and trim work. The cafe in the new section of the museum is very good with affordable prices.

There's also a very nice cafe with a great menu. The only complaint is that it is quite difficult to navigate your way around the three floors and different galleries. The signage is... More

Recently expanded with a beautiful new wing, the Crocker Art Museum features some engaging permanent exhibits, including an expansive pottery and regional modern art collection, but also offers splendid, but small, traveling exhibits. The museum, for example, recently hosted an African American art exhibit with 20th century photos and paintings; at the same time, they hung a number of early... More

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.

They expanded and it is now a superior art museum with all their new additions. Of course it contains a variety of art so you will find something you will like. It has many permanent installations as... More

The old Crocker Mansion in downtown Sacramento serves as the core of this newly remodeled and greatly expanded art museum. A good collection with something to suit everybody's taste and interesting architecture to look at while walking through the museum. Lots of old west art, but much more---a classical art museum, the best in Northern California east of the Bay... More
