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. Don't forget to tag us! #crockerart

Food and Drink
The first floor of the Museum is food and drink friendly, but when face coverings and masks are required for health reasons, we ask that you enjoy your refreshments outside. Please remember to keep food and beverages on the first floor only.
