Owner description: The Crocker Art Museum was one of the first art museums in the U.S. and is now one of the leading art institutions in California. Established in 1885, the Museum features one of the country’s finest collections of Californian art, exceptional holdings of master drawings, a comprehensive collection of international ceramics, as well as European, Asian, African, and Oceanic art. The Crocker is CLOSED every Monday.

Part of the museum is housed in the Edwin B. Crocker mansion, and it's possible to just sit for a while soaking in its beauty; no art needed. However, the collection is huge, varied and outstanding. As good as the DeYoung in San Francisco without the hordes of people everywhere. Since the permanent collection is huge and is changed out from time to time, one could hardly ever see everything. We live two hours away but will be returning frequently.

This place is awesome! Great exhibits and helpful staff. If you have questions there is always a volunteer close by to ask. You can spend an entire day here with no problem. Something for everyone.

Spent President's Day at the Crocker as a family of four. It was a day of celebration for Black History Month and they had a fabulous itinerary of dancers, music, crafts and vendors. We thoroughly enjoyed the paperdoll craft and installation. And the traditional African dance and music was fabulous. Educational and fun for the kids. We didn't have enough time to view the entire museum but it appears to be a first rate museum. Can't wait to return, a definite two thumbs up.

We visit the Crocker art Museum to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit. The Crocker is a great museum. We have found the secial exhibits to be wonderful and we really enjoy the early California art. Even the frames are amazing.

This museum has expanded quite a bit and includes many more new
exhibits, periodically. It is an interesting structure, and it has a nice cafe inside.
