The Haggin is located in an old residential area of Stockton and is surrounded by a large, well kept, city park. The park hosts local baseball and other sports each week and walkers circle the area nightly. Now the museum. The Haggin has a collection of artwork, as well as exhibits that relate to the local culture and history. Until... More

We are members of the Museum and attend many of the evening programs. The museum is very nice and has lots of exhibits both permanent and temporary. We go often to the evening programs and wander through the exhibits

Some special exhibits are boring photo collections. Rarely does the museum take in ethnographic art, even though the city of Stockton is rich in immigrants. The best part of the museum are downstairs in the basement. The tractor was invented in Stockton, so there is a good permanent collection of early agricultural machines. Also, Stockton has and excellent collection of... More

I went to this museum with a friend for a clarinet quartet, and we walked around the museum afterwards. I loved the concert and the exhibits were very nice. I wish I had gone back another time to spend more time in this museum.

Cool artifacts of early Stockton life. Beautiful art. Too bad the mummy is gone. Easy parking, nice stroll within Victory Park and the Rose Garden is a must see.

Besides a wonderful display of Stockton's local history, including Tillie Lewis and Holt farm equipment, the large collection of Bierstadt's paintings is my favorite part. The first Sat. each month has free admission and the gift shop in the basement has some great items, especially at Christmas. Parking can be a little tricky because the Museum is in the middle...
