The popular Artmix is ruined by terribly long lines. I paid $10 but was only able to spend 30 minutes viewing the art. It took 20-25 minutes to get in and I paid cash! And then I waited another 20-25 to get a beverage. It's...More

Get familiar with the one way streets approaching the venue. Park at the meters on the streets or in the park. Admire the mansion next door and the outdoor sculptures.

Each floor has beautifully lighted artwork well documented. I love the permanent collection, and new African large works. Don't miss the Chihulli chandelier from the upper floors looking down!

This museum is located in downtown Sacramento, close to the river. Many people think this was the home of the Crockers, but it was actually built as a museum. In recent years, there has been a modern addition to display the huge collection that was/is...More

The Crocker always had a good selection of art that appealed to the 19th century rich guys like Crocker from whom it got a lot of its collection. It now also has an interesting collection of local contemporary work, including an awe inspiring portrait by...More
