A great addition to the collection of other amazing attractions in Sacramento. It has attractions from as back as 200 BC to as recent as 2016. A must visit!

Spent a few hours wandering through. Thoroughly the mix of contemporary and traditional works. Highlight was being allowed to photo woodwork of type seen in Stanford mansion. Did not know that Crocker was involved with Central Pacific Railroad.Huge pottery collection by Native American artists.

My husband and I go to the Crocker about every three months. It is great. We love the permanent collections and always find something new to focus on, but the rotating exhibits are always great. We especially like the old Crocker building part of it....More

A beautiful gallery both architecturally and the works within. It has a well stocked gift shop and cafe where you can sit in a lovely light space.

We happily wandered for hours, enjoying pieces that ranged from Renaissance to Contemporary, with a myriad of mediums -- oils, watercolor, photography, sculpture, paper, and more. Displays are well organized and flow from one room to another. I need to return!

Wonderful place to spend a few hours, many different exhibit halls. I really like the modern art hall. Worth the price. Gift shop had a lot of nice items also.

A large complex of buildings with very well displayed art work of various mediums. A particularly nice set of play area options for children. Cafe on ground floor near entrance. Parkmobile app helps with paying for nearby street parking.
