Parking at the Crocker can be impacted during large events. To ensure an easy parking experience during your visit, we suggest using street parking (metered) on 3rd Street, Front Street, or N Street to avoid City of Sacramento parking lot congestion. Smartphone users can also download the ParkMobile app to find and pay for parking. The Museum is also easily accessible by Sacramento Regional Transit’s Light Rail. Stops at 8th & O streets and at 8th & K streets are the closest.
