The first public art museum in the West, the Crocker Art Museum was established in 1885 and remains one of the leading art museums in Northern California. The Crocker offers a diverse spectrum of special exhibitions, events, and programs to augment its collections of Californian, European, Asian, African and Oceanic artworks, and international ceramics.

In 1868, Judge Edwin B. Crocker purchased the property and existing buildings on the corner of Third and O Streets. He then commissioned local architect Seth Babson to redesign and renovate the home into a grander, Italianate mansion with an adjacent gallery building. Completed in 1872, the Crocker family mansion and art gallery are considered the masterpieces of Babson's career.

The family mansion went through several uses and reconstructions until a 1989 renovation restored the historic façade and created a modern gallery interior. The original buildings, now connected, were renamed the Crocker Art Museum in 1978. On October 10, 2010, the Crocker opened the 125,000-square-foot Teel Family Pavilion. The classic, contemporary design of the Pavilion complements the historic structures. The expansion more than tripled the Museum's size, enhancing its role as a cultural and educational resource for Sacramento and the region’s many visitors.
