Life is “Sweeter” In Crockett

Crockett Museum is reopening – June 16, 2021!

The stalwart volunteers down at the Crockett Museum are busy implementing visitor and volunteer safety procedures according to our Workplace Specific Plan, and are delighted to announce the happy news that Crockett Museum will reopen to the public on June 16th! We will reinstate regular open hours (Wednesdays and Saturdays 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM).

Join Us for Fun Activities at Our Reopening Celebration on June 19
From 10 am – 3 pm, bring your family and friends down to:

  • See recent additions to the collection
  • Enjoy some refreshments
  • Get a free souvenir interactive (pick a favorite artifact and have it ironed on to an item of your choice, such as cotton tote or t-shirt).
  • and Find out about upcoming public programs happening this summer, such as presentations on Crockett history, native plants, and much beloved family recipes.

Visitors to the Crockett Museum are often charmed by the unique nature of the displays; many exhibits remain from the original ones created almost 40 years ago. The town of Crockett has been heavily influenced by C&H’s presence since 1906, and that influence is felt in the display of the evolution of sugar products and the sugar industry. Citizens of Crockett have enjoyed a proud connection with their local schools, and trophies and photos abound.

Other exhibits share information about the history of the town/area, businesses, churches, the Carquinez Bridge(s), fraternities/social clubs, and military service members.

One of the more popular artifacts in the Museum is known as “Joey’s Fish,” an enormous 468 lb. taxidermied sturgeon (caught on a rod and reel), the likes of which will never be caught again! A complete collection of the Cubelet Press (the house organ of C&H from 1936-1992) is available for research, as well as Crockett Signal  and Crockett American from 1908 until 1976 and Crockett Signal magazine 1989 to present day.

Note: We are currently CLOSED due to COVID restrictions. We will be reopening on June 16, 2021!

If you are interested in sharing a talent, spending some time among artifacts, learning about the history of your town, or welcoming visitors, please call or stop by during open hours!
