For the history buffs, this is a beautiful museum that always has something going on. The surrounding Victory Park gives the big city Stockton a small town feel. In the summer, there is the weekly music in the park to enjoy.

My buddy and I go cruising (we are seniors who like to check out CA history). We happened upon this place and what a find. We had a docent all to ourselves who took us on a complete tour. While this is not the Met it does provide local history without being overdone. My advice is to check it out.

I took my little sister for a walk around the park (just shy of a mile long). We stopped for a tour of the museum and saw the charro exhibit. We also toured around the whole museum. Definitely a must if you are into history. Going to take my husband next.

A nice collection of art and very interesting exhibits--everything from the NFL to the Pulitzer award winning photograph collection to Salvatore Dali sketches.

This is a jewel that should not be overlooked. They have fine art works. Great local history from native America basketry to area inventors that have changed multiple industries through many generations. I love spending an afternoon with my children when a new exhibit is opened.
