“Don't Miss It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW

If you are a resident or visitor to Sacramento and enjoy the arts, do not miss the Crocker Art Museum.
Wonderful selection of art, old, new and historical and the old aprt of the original mansion is a piece of wonderful art in itself.

Near enough to OLD Sacramento to include it in a tour, it is really something to see and a fun place to take the kids as well.

“Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, CA.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2014

A beautiful, open, airy museum with a varied collection of art, sculptures, and videos. The art is fascinating for all ages, modern and traditional, with marvelous special exhibitions. I see school parties regularly. Super cafe in sunny, windowed ground floor--great place for a lunch date.

Family friendly, with classes and talks scheduled throughout the week and weekends.
