Fodor's Review

Established in 1885 with a collection first assembled by California Supreme Court judge E.B. Crocker and his wife, Margaret, the Crocker contains a fine collection of Californian, American, and Asian art. A highlight is the magnificent Great Canyon of the Sierra, Yosemite (1871) by Thomas Hill. The museum has exceptional holdings of master drawings as well as an impressive collection of international ceramics and works from Europe, Asia, and Africa. A huge contemporary wing was added in 2010 and regularly hosts outstanding traveling exhibitions. Recent exhibitions have included works by Toulouse-Lautrec, Ansel Adams, Diego Rivera, and William S. Rice.
