It had been a while since visiting the Crocker which was originally a railroad baron's mansion and exquisite in its detailing. The new addition is beautiful. We were attracted to the Andy Warhol exhibit which was super. I was most impressed with the works and the video presentations featuring many key artists from UC Davis who were instrumental in creating... More

This is a great place to visit. I would not recommend it for small children. It has beautiful artifacts. The art and the building itself is amazing.

This museum has been expanded and modernized over last few years. It houses an excellent permanent collection, and hosts world class exhibits during the year. There is a wonderful gift shop easily accessed near main entrance and a museum café-restaurant with interesting delicious food. The ambience upon entry is bright, spacious, and sophisticated with clean modern design. A recent addition... More

This is a very nice collection and the old Crocker mansion is a beautiful venue as well. The woodwork and tiles are exquisite. Love the California collection -- if you're a native, you will recognize many of the landscapes depicted in the painting, which makes it especially enjoyable. Shop is nice.

We came to Crocker for a wedding dinner and party. It was a beautiful space, architecturally interesting and spacious not only in the patio area, but inside as well. I cannot say anything about the art collection, sadly, but merely hope you'll have an opportunity to go here and enjoy the beauty soon in the future.

Part of it was the old Crocker House and as a Sacramento native, that was the whole museum in the past. Then the artwork was very crowded on the wall but it is now very spacious . I have been here many times with my children on field trips in the past. Street parking will cost---we have to use parking... More
