Have been there many, many times and was thrilled to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit a few years back. They are always on top of things and the new café is a great addition so we can sit and enjoy the atmosphere.

Beautiful museum with a great offering of California artists along with rooms of paintings, ceramics and sculpture across many centuries. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here- give yourself at least 2-3 hours to leisurely see the place.

Visit the Crocker a couple times a year. Always something new to experience. Be sure to check out the gift shop. Lots of unique items - even for a local!
