  • This museum is a trap. Before you realize the exhibits are lacking you have already paid an entry fee. They bombard you with racist mannequins that show the "Original Peoples of the San Joaquin Delta". One would think over the years you would pull this exhibit and create something more educational and realistic. There is an extreme lack of parking at the museum. Close parking is reserved for Museum staff and donors. The rest of us have to brave Victory Park after parking on the street. The collection is full of work with questionable provenance. The Gauguin is highly fraudulent and makes the rest of the collection suspect. If you are a senior citizen in Stockton please do not let them convince you fit them into your will. This Museum is undeserving of support and needs to better serve the community by removing the racist exhibits and weeding out the frauds in their collection.
  • The native American collection is impressive. There is a great display of WWl and WWII posters. Very interesting and informative. Also a Picasso loan from Bank of America. La Tauromaquia is a series of 26 aquatic etchings. There is a renovation so you don't have access to the main 3rd floor gallery but they offer a $5.00 admission during the renovation. Enjoy the museum store.
  • Great museum. Very nice people.
  • I was kind of disappointed. But most of the placed was closed off due to renovations.
  • I drove through Stockton on my way to sacremento and stopped purely to visit this place. I've been desperate to see some Albert Bierstadt paintings and it was completely worth the effort
