“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I'd recommend this place to anyone who's visiting Sacramento, without a doubt! Even if you're not an art person, this place is still awesome in so many ways. The walk through the museum is always a very therapeutic experience for me, and you'll see why. Go check it out, and do go online and check on their website to see which artist is being featured or having an exhibit there. My personal favorite seasonal exhibit so far is the 'Origami Exhibit' they had there last year. :)

Constantly changing exhibits, beautiful grounds and great art! Easy to get to and off street parking and close to Old Sacramento.

“stress gone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

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.

“First class collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

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.

“Wonderful Art Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

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 and look for new exhibits. Always a wonderful experience.
