They have a very nice selection of American art, the special exhibition during our visit was of E. Charlton Fortune, an artist we didn't know, a tour through her artistic life, and it was wonderful. Lunch in the museum cafe was very good and reasonable.

A friend suggested and personally introduced us to this museum. From contemporary to impressionist and earlier, the collection and quality of exhibitions puts this museum among my favorites of California. Great curatorial staff work hard to give the visitor a memorable experience.

The Crocker is a beautiful place in the City, with ever rotating, evolving art pieces, styles, experiences. We go yearly, and it never disappoints. Lovely day!

You have the new part and then what I think is the most interesting is the part of the museum that is located inside the original Crocker Mansion. Works of art that you own't see elsewhere that you'll enjoy.

Doesn't look like it from the outside but it's a huge collection. The special exhibition was E Fortune.
