The Crocker Art Museum is an exceptional place to go! They change out some of what they have from time to time, so even if you have been before, you can still go and not get bored. I wouldn't recommend it to young children, because they might get bored looking and start wanting to touch everything. I know I still... More

A delightful space to spend a few hours. If you don't like the art in one room, move on to another. Don't forget to enjoy the halls of art. Permanent collection is worth seeing again and again. I always notice something different. The "traveling" exhibits bring more fabulous artists' works. The cafe is a great place to take a lunch... More

It's a nice collection with some neat pieces. I'm not a huge art fan, but I enjoyed it a lot. The building in itself is gorgeous. The cafe food was great. I went as part of a teachers' workshop and thought they did a great job presenting their materials and can use them in my classroom.

This was my first visit to the museum without a group of elementary school aged students. My cousin and I went there to see the Warhol exhibit. We only wish we'd had more time to explore.

There was a lot of art in the museum but nothing really stood out. What was interesting was the mansion that was donated to the state that is part of the museum. It dates from the mid-1800s and really gives one a sense of wealth from those making money in the railway business.

A great museum! Beautiful buildings: the old mansion and the modern with wonderful natural light. Galleries are scaled well and lovely installations. Staff is helpful and friendly.

It's no LACMA but it was nice to walk through and had some beautiful pieces. We arrived an hour before closing and wished that we had had more time. I loved the California landscape pieces.

Love the traveling shows. The standard artwork is always fun to see over & over. Cafe & store are OK, a bit pricey. Parking can be tricky & the meter folks are always circling around to write up $40 expired parking tickets!
