Getting Started at the Crocker
With art ranging from European drawings and Native American ceramics to California paintings and Chinese tomb figures, there is much to discover. If you are hoping to see the whole museum in one visit, we recommend you allow for at least three hours. Maps can be found at the admission desk, and while you're there, you can also ask about docent tours or Story Trail, our museum guide for kids.

Families with small children can feel welcome in the galleries, and if you need a space to play and be active, spend some time in Tot Land on the first floor of the Museum's historic building.

The Crocker is committed to reducing barriers and increasing accessibility to the Museum and art experiences. The Museum is architecturally barrier-free, and there are three elevators that service the three levels of the Museum. Accessible restrooms and drinking fountains are located on each level of the Museum. The Crocker welcomes working service animals that are necessary to assist patrons with disabilities. Services animals must be under control by their handler at all times. Visit this page for more information about our accessible programs and services.

A Touchy Subject
We thank you for not touching the art. While we understand the irresistible impulse to touch, there are compelling reasons to resist. The gentlest contact with a work of art can cause irreversible damage to all kinds of surfaces, even metal and stone. Pressure can cause old paintings to crack. Natural oils, moisture, and dirt in our skin can also result in permanent stains, fingerprints and even the chemical breakdown of canvases and papers, pigments and varnishes.

Visitor Photography
The Crocker loves photography!

Please feel welcome to take photographs of art in the Crocker’s permanent collection. We ask that you DO NOT use flash. Many exhibition contracts prohibit photography, however, so please refrain from taking pictures when you see the no photography symbol.

Food and Drink
The Crocker Cafe by Supper Club offers delicious meals and beverages. We hope you'll stay and have a bite. The first floor of the Museum is food and drink friendly. The second and third floors are just friendly. Please remember to keep food and beverages on the first floor only. (Food and drink are also not allowed in the Setzer Foundation Auditorium.)
