Having been to the Haggin Museum a number of times while I was growing up, I just never seem to have enough coming here. It is always exciting for me to note that each time I visit here, it brings back fond memories of yesteryears living in the community and learning more about the San Joaquin Valley. It is always...

The Pioneer Gallery boasts detailed exhibits on the history of Stockton, below it are a collection of storefronts from the turn of the 19th century. Other historical highlights include a Native American exhibit, one of the earliest Holt Caterpillar Tractors manufactured... More

It is just a jewel for Stockton. The setting is so beautiful. In Victory Park. Lots of local items from the gold rush and when Stockton was young. Agricultural exhibits. Wonderful collection of art. There is even a mummy. Great for adults and kids.

Before heading to Stockton, CA, I knew that the Haggin Museum had at least one painting by the outstanding painter Albert Bierstadt, one of my favorite artists. Little did I know that they had at least eight of his originals, most of them in the lobby of the museum! I walked around the area multiple times studying these incredibly impressive... More

I used to attend the University of the Pacific. And during my time there, I never toured this museum. So during a visit to town, I really wanted to make the effort to go there. This museum is small, but it packs a lot into it. It has personal possessions of the family which founded the museum, and touches upon... More

Interesting facts about Stockton and the surrounding agricultural areas. If you have a hard time walking up/down steps this may not be for you.

The Haggin covers local history and culture well, but it's also got an impressive cache of major international artworks. In addition to the largest museum collection of pieces by seminal 20th century commercial artist JC Leyendecker, it possesses works by Gaugin, Renoir, and Albert Bierstadt, among others. The Haggin also hosts visiting exhibits and community events, so there's always something... More

What a nice surprise. This museum is a little gem for Stockton. Beautiful artwork and neat exhibits. Tour the museum then picnic in the lovely park. The Haggin is located in a nice upscale area of Stockton. Do make it a point to visit.
