One of the few places in Sacramento that you can proudly show to visitors. Wonderful older mansion from a bygone era, lots of history to the home itself, and a very nice art/painting collection to view

This is another exhibit not to be missed.His work is primarily of California landscapes with many oils depicting California poppies and lupine and seascapes. As always, the exhibit is very well done. The exhibit is on view until May 17, 2020. And, the gift shop has many beautiful "poppy" items.

We went for the Granville Redmond exhibit, which was disappointing. The museum had assembled an impressive collection of his work, most from private collections; however, his style was somewhat unexciting. Pretty, but lacking something. I will leave that to art critics. The museum, however, is impressive....interesting architecture, great cafe, large shop and a lovely, if small, collection of European art 16th-19th c. The Crocker house was amazing!! So glad that we were able to visit!

Had only a few minutes to quickly see as much as possible, yet I was very impressed and left with a taste of more. Looking forward to returning again for a few hours of peacefully walking around the exhibits.
