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.

A very impressive art museum near Old Sacramento. The old museum is an architectual delight and the recent addition is impressive. I am especially fond of the works of the landscapes of Thomas Hill. The collection runs the gamut from the old Masters to modern...More

Every year, the Crocker has a "third Thursday" jazz series which brings out very good known and not-so-known jazz artists. For years, this has been a wonderful venue for these intimate jazz concerts. Food and drinks are available for a very reasonable charge. A great...More
