A beautiful Art Museum, the Crocker was FREE the day we went (not sure why). We spent a couple of hours here and still didn't see it all. Wonderful collection of Contemporary Art and Ceramics.

The permanent collection focuses on California artists--of which there are plenty. It's a beautiful space and the old and new wings are nicely joined. The pottery alone is worth the visit.

The exhibitions were educational and informative. It's well maintained and we're looking forward to going again. We got there by taxi, so I'm not sure about parking. The museum is not expensive and they sell cute souvenirs.

Not a big art fan, but accompanied my partner to a special exhibit which was awesome. Definitely liked the fact that there were so many different art genres to see. The building is amazing as well.

Jazz as in the Jazz Jubilee? Or Crocker specific concerts? I've have seen a musical event inside at the Crocker, never anything outside. But often the Annual Dixieland Jazz Jubilee events are outside venues, and the... More
