Wonderful outing

The current glass exhibit is better than what is being shown at the DeYoung. Go see it while you still can.

Promenade at a pleasant and peaceful pace among a plethora of paintings. I love the old mansion. The modern extension works well to display the art but does not blend well into the original building.

This museum has recently expanded, and there are so many rooms to explore. I particularly like the part in the old Crocker house where you can see the ballroom, and upstairs gallery. The rest is more of a standard gallery environment, but there are so many different rooms and styles to explore. It's easy to get lost! We enjoyed the... More

We were very impressed with the wide range of art; much oriented to California which made it ever easier to relate. Beautiful displaces, wide and airy exhibits, clean surroundings. Special exhibit on glass had some outstanding art forms.

The Crocker greatly exceeds what you'd expect to find in Sacramento. The core of its collection are the works collected by Judge Crocker and his family in the 19th century, which includes both old world classics and a large collection of California and Western art. But beyond that, the Crocker has expanded its collection to include art from all over... More

We were here for two major shows in the past two months Andy Warhol and a glass exhibit. Both were well done and very interesting. There is a lot to learn about art and artists, the Crocker is an informed way to get that information. Well presented!!

I easily spent 4 full hours at this Museum. The history of how it started as a collection by Sacramento pioneers is fascinating. The way it is displayed with architecture based upon the times gives a full authentic feel. It has a variety of work both ancient , European, Asian, African and contemporary. Also has constantly changing exhibitions. I saw... More

It's a contrast, the old mansion with the super modern extension. A very diverse collection makes it worth a visit for everyone. Some good expositions on regular basis. Also performances o.a. Jazz. Like to see more healthy food choises in the cafeteria.
