In addition to a varied collection of art in the lobby is a great place to have lunch. Also on the main floor is a gift shop worth visiting. You can spend a short time to several hours looking at the collections, which can be broken up by having a nice lunch.

I really enjoyed this museum on several levels. Unfortunately there were no docent tours yesterday so the following is my perception. I walked to the museum from my hotel. Initially, you see the Crocker Mansion and then what looks like another mansion it actually the original museum. They have added a very modern structure to the side of that. I... More

Went on a rainy day and it is a great museum. Good layout and lots of different forms of art. Wish I hadn't spent so much time in the first part of the museum and there are many hidden gems to be found on other floors as well as "towards the back".

The Crocker staff know how to display art. The gallery walls are not jammed with art work and there are thoughtful write ups of the artists and context of the pieces. Parking can be difficult. If you use the city lot on weekends push the minus button on the parking ticket dispenser to reduce the fee from$10 to the required... More

...in the recent new wing that houses the entrance and exhibition spaces and the re-hang and re-installation of the permanent collection. Their recent exhibition of master drawings was an excellent idea beautifully thought through with loans from other Californian print rooms, each matching, mirroring and commenting on works in the Crocker’s own collection, which is rarely though understandably not often...

One might not expect a collection of this quality and breadth in Sacramento. This museum is a "must see" collection for art lovers.

The Crocker Art Museum has an eclectic collection of art older and new. The older art is located in the historic home of the Crocker family (of Crocker Bank fame). Their home is a great showcase for the traditional pieces; some relating to the early west and outdoors. The additional new wings hold the cafeteria, some newer collections, and any... More

I attended a free tour of the Mansion and the Gallery which was wonderful. My tour guide gave a wonderful historic and valentines special showing to me with a little breath into artists though process. I loved it more $$ should be devoted to things of this nature and culture. I enjoyed learning of the Big 4 and Big 5... More
