The Crocker Art Museum is a world class museum in the heart of downtown Sacramento! Wonderful curating, beautiful pieces, and a great cafe and gift shop to boot! I would recommend that Crocker as a highlight to anyone visiting Sacramento that enjoys art museums.

it is about a 10-15 minute walk. - The Amtrack is at 401 I street and Crocker is on 216 O street. No need for a cab. Its a good walk.
