  • Crocker is truly a gem in Sacramento. What better way to spend a hot summer day than in an AC indoor environment and looking at some neat art? It's extremely accessible at $10 per adult entry fee. The ballroom in the old section of the museum is an exhibit on its own (be sure to look up). Also a tip: the food in the cafe is good - it's way above the average for the museum cafeteria tier. Grab a bite there and it won't disappoint.
  • I absolutely loved this museum! What a gem! I was visiting Sac City from out of town and the Crocker happened to be open late on a Thursday night. Wow! The building is gorgeous inside and out. The collection of California landscape paintings from the Hudson River School to present is impressive. Great collection of European art and modern art as well. Very affordable. I can't wait to stop by again next time I am in town.
