  • I visited the Crocker museum in Sacramento and is really very nice! I recommend you go see it! Very peculiar old houses the Museum, Victorian style. And nice new wing also built a few years ago and that is definitely not out of context. A museum that I was definitely impressed! I'll be back one day

  • Interesting and diverse art collection and a fun museum shop but the Crocker home, which houses some of the collection is a stunner. Gotta love those stairways. 
  • Yes, I cart museum is a museum, but it is also a place where people get together and have fun, listening to music, enjoying food, and watching beautiful art. My husband and I like to go to taco Tuesda...  more »

  • Don't want to spoil much but come here as early as possible so you can see everything as there is 3 floor of art for you to see and learn. Plenty of parking around the park area which you can come out to have a nice little picnic lunch at the park area or go stroll down the river-walk into old Sacramento area for lunch.
  • WOW! How have I lived in Sacramento and not been to the Crocker! I was VERY surprised with the size of the museum and its very diverse collection! We were even able to spend two hours with kids and they were (fairly) well behaved. I cant wait to go back, hopefully to one of the evening events, and possibly get a membership.
  • Great venue for live local cultural performances and such. There is a nice little concessions area as well
  • Some great traveling pieces/shows come through. Beautiful buildings and art. Several fun and worthwhile events not specifically for or around art get hosted here and are worth attending just from being hosted at Crocker. Admission is worth the cost.
  • Art Mix Howl November 2016 was a significant public event that connected the community through spoken word and social justice. ..Our Crocker is a treasured accessible space for All Sacramentans to Marvel in and Create Concious Events ..
