|About these ratings|
Boasting more than 15,000 pieces of art, the Crocker Art Museum is Sacramento's dose of high culture. Having undergone a recent renovation and addition, the modernized facility hosts its exhibitions and permanent collections in large, beautiful spaces that allow the works and the building to shine. Visitors are regularly impressed with the permanent collection, particularly its extensive ceramic and Impressionist pieces.
Pointing out his favorite, a TripAdvisor user says: "The galleries showing the California impressionists were magnificent and mesmerizing. They exuded a calm loveliness and showcased what the California landscape used to look like before being overrun with cars, people and suburbs."
Located near the Sacramento River and south of Old Sacramento, the Crocker Art Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. On Thursdays the exhibits stay open until 9 p.m. Admission costs $10 for adults. For more information, check out the museum's website.
