My husband surprised me after our luncheon on a holiday. I had been meaning to visit the museum for years really. I was completely delighted, I can't wait to go back when I have more time and can see everything.

Gift shop is very well-stocked with fun/art items. Parking...More

We came for the Ruth Rippon exhibit, Exuberant Earth, but the entire museum is a must-see. Beautiful, bright, clean, filled with so much beauty and art it's difficult to take it all in. If you're visiting Sacramento, don't miss it!

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
