The Haggin Museum, an art and history museum, has been referred to by Sunset magazine as “one of the undersung gems of California.” Its art collection features works by such noted 19th-century painters as Albert Bierstadt, Rosa Bonheur, and William-Adolphe Bouguereau, J.C. Leyendecker, as well as many other American and European artists. The Haggin Museum features exhibits on local and regional history, hosts traveling history and art exhibits, and invites the public to special events including late night Thursday events every 1st and 3rd Thursday with wine and food as well as hands-on activities for children ages 5-12 every 2nd Saturday of the month.
Visitors seeking a more in-depth exploration of their health can utilize one of Haggin’s Wellness Tours. These self-guided tours are designed to facilitate viewing the museum’s art & history collection through the lens of emotions one may be experiencing, or striving for, during their visit. Each stop along the tour prompts the visitor to dig deeper and reflect upon the art or artifact and themselves.

-Reconnect with a loved one, examine the connection between human and animal as they gather for the hunt or perform an act of kindness.

Lots of history in stockton. Beautiful place to spend on a nice warm Sunday With family. Gorgeous paintings and fun activities for kids to do.
Exceptional, quaint and intimate fine art museum! We were more than impressed with the collection at the Haggin. We strolled and took our time in each exhibit, taking in history and seriously magnificent works of art. The Haggin is a hidden gem not to be missed! I recommend the museum store for interesting gifts, too. Overall: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Very well done! It’s been some years since we last visited this museum & the improvements are quite impressive. The bright open interior accentuates the high ceilings, wood panel flooring, decorative moulding. The Fine Arts are beautifully showcased, telling an elegant story. The Historical Collection amazingly preserved. The Sci Fi Collection an amusing addition. Bonus: We went on “Free Saturday”, which happens once monthly.
No spoilers but there is a freaky trunk on the basement with a macabre story… Don't judge the museum by the outside, there is no parking lot, its surrounded by a park where many ppl go, but when I stepped in, it felt like a complete different World. A contrast of local history and old tractors with beautiful paintings and sculptures from late 1800. Downstairs the rooms you look in through a window are so incredibly well put together and your mind travels back in time for a bit. As well as amazing Native American art…Highly recommend a visit, park on the streets and walk through the park to the front door. Its great, Im telling you.
The art museum is just about the right size. The history museum is a little small. However, you can get into both for the same very low price, and they complement each other. I have been three times, and I have enjoyed the traveling exhibits each time.
This is a world-class museum that is oddly located in Stockton California. They have an amazing collection of Leyendecker paintings. Some other fantastic artwork as well. I rank this art museum well above San Diego art museum. The staff is very friendly. Parking is on the street surrounding the park, it’s a short walk to the museum.
Great museum. I had to kill some time while my car was getting fixed and the 4 hours flew by. Great view into the history of Stockton
The native American collection is impressive. There is a great display of WWl and WWII posters. Very interesting and informative. Also a Picasso loan from Bank of America. La Tauromaquia is a series of 26 aquatic etchings. There is a renovation so you don't have access to the main 3rd floor gallery but they offer a $5.00 admission during the renovation. Visited March 17, 2022 and enjoyed the Children's exhibit... From kindergarten to highschool, so much color and talent Enjoy the museum store.
Excellent collection. A must see museum if you are in the Stockton area. 8 bucks d or adults, money well spent.
Today they having a private event, some areas closed. I like to go there, because even that is small museum it has a variety of nice and beautiful art.
I joined a senior group as a caregiver on my little adventure. If you enjoy art and displays of local vintage artifacts this museum holds some information you might find interesting enough to check out. From agriculture, to Stocktons harbor along with a Native American exhibit. They even have a gift shop toward the end if your looking for a souvenir or memory to take home with you. Elevators for the disabled and sturdy stairs for others willing to take that extra step. Restrooms inside as well as out in the park surrounding the area. Pop up shops sometimes selling snacks and refreshments. A small but fascinating place to unwind letting your mind explore the creativity and love of passionate people.
This is a world-class museum that is oddly located in Stockton California. They have an amazing collection of Leyendecker paintings. Some other fantastic artwork as well. I rank this art museum well above San Diego art museum. The staff is very friendly. The only negative would be that all of the on-site parking is reserved permit only. All of the visitor parking is on the street, almost as though they don’t expect people to visit. However it is well worth the walk once inside.
Amazing art work here. Can easily spend half a day here if you appreciate fine art and history.
I'm 59 years old and I still love to go to the museum plus they allowed me to bring my little riding buddy with me check out the photo
Exhibits are wonderful. Staff, excellent. It is clean and friendly. We are long time visitors and it always holds our interests with the diversity. Stockton can be proud of this musem. My only complaint is lack of handicapped parking. There was one spot in the staff parking area. But also many signs that read Staff only. The signage was confusing. We went ahead and parked in the marked space and then when we buzzed for entry and a staff member came to open the door, we confirmed it was ok for us to park there. It is only because we are familiar with this museum that we knew to try that area for parking. Without it, I would have been unable to be there to enjoy the exhibits. Please fix this glitch and make sure you are compliant with the law in this regard..
We went to see my granddaughters acrylic painting but there were so many interesting artifacts that we stayed until they were about to close. We will go back again and again.
This is a must visit if you want to see the history of Stockton. From paintings 🖼 to vintage photographs 📸 to Native Americans history. Super cheap and it will take a good amount of time to see all three levels. Check it out
I was a weekend docent. I met some wonderful people who were very interested in our beautiful museum. 😍
One of the best museum with the paintings created from 1800... recommend to visit.
Wonderful place for a day outing with your children. I have been visiting since my grammar school trips in the 1950s. I now visit with my grandchildren. Well worth your time. Recommend for all ages.
This is a wonderful and must I say beautifully remodeled museum. Nice for the family visit. A Stockton gem.
VERY Nice local museum. Excellent exhibits of both local and national fame. Wonderful Hudson River School landscapes of California. I particularly liked the Saturday Evening Post covers and the Leyendecker illustrations. Quite the treat! Highly recommended. Oh, visit the museum store too!
This is one of my favorite parks, not only can you see the wildlife, flowers, and ponds, they have an amazing 😀 play are for the children and of course the museum! Also this park is a bit more safe with all the traffic than some of the other secluded parks in Stockton. We all need to stick together and help others in the time of need as well... even if thats just picking up your phone and dialing 911, every life matters! Please remember that. Stay strong we will get through all obstacles if we all work together as one!
I havent been in a very long time. But woukd love the opportunity to do so. I do love the rose garden located right outside of it, very beautiful!
Awesome experience probably the best that Stockton has to offer. If you have any interest in art or local history this place is a must-go. Good for kids too.
Caught the last days of crazy family photos display. Hilarious. See Stockton's history and the people who made it.
First time here! It was exquisite, loved all the artwork! Highly recommend it!
Great way to spend some time in Stockton. My favorite section is the American artists gallery, truly some exceptional pieces on display.
A great way to spend two hours, learn about Stockton history, and enjoy a beautiful art collection.
Great museum with good collection of painting and arts. Enjoyed the visit a lot.
