The Crocker Art museum is a wonderful attraction for adults and children. The variety in exhibits, modern and historical architecture, and friendliness of staff make this a must visit. There is plenty of metered street parking and the price of admission is reasonable at $10.00. I recently visited with a friend and we were able to view most of the... More

The Crocker has "arrived" in the big leagues of art museums in the US. Fresh and cutting edge approach to museum management and changing gallery shows. If you have never visited, put it on your list. Understated buildings from the outside have really well thought out gallery and gathering places inside. Huge glassed in community / event space with very... More

The Crocker boasts an outstanding art collection. Whether you're interested in contemporary art or ancient art, what you find on display at the Crocker is excellent. The architecture and the museum operation is also top-notch. I highly recommend a visit to the Crocker.

For those who appreciate Albrecht Durer's drawings and etchings, the Crocker now has a wonderful display of them and artists from that period of European history. You could easily spend an entire day just in that part of the third floor. I'm one of those who feels that I "must" read all the information that accompanies each sketch, etching or... More

Originally housed in the Crocker Mansion, this museum has grown and grown with time. The house, with its Gilded Age splendor, still makes a dramatic housing for many of the exhibits, but the galleries that were added on now house so much more! I went to see the Durer exhibit, which had an excellent collection not just of Durer, but... More

The Crocker in Sacramento is the oldest art museum in the west, and the old building shows it; it's a glorious mansion from the late 19th century, replete with woodwork, chandeliers, etc. that one would expect of such a grand house. It became an art museum in 1885. It continued in that fashion until the late 20th century when, with... More

Went to see the Durer exhibition and found so much more. So much to see at this museum but you can pick the genre you prefer. I'm not so much into the "modern" art as I am the classics. Wife likes both so we did our own tours and met up feeling that we should have devoted more time. We... More
