The Legion of Honor, a three-quarter scale adaptation of the 18th-century Palais de la Legion d'Honneur in Paris, is one of San Francisco's most beautiful museums. Built to commemorate Californian soldiers who died in World War I, the Legion of Honor is a neoclassical building located in San Francisco's Lincoln Park. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge and all of San Francisco, the Legion is noted for its breathtaking setting. The museum displays a collection of over 4,000 years of ancient and European art and houses the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts.

What will you see at the Legion of Honor? Highlights of the collections include works by El Greco, Peter Paul Rubens, Auguste Rodin, Rembrandt van Rijn, Claude Monet and Fra Angelico. Perhaps Rodin's best-known monumental work, the Thinker, dominates the Legion's outdoor Court of Honor. Don’t miss these additional highlights:

  • European Paintings: El Greco, Saint John the Baptist, ca. 1600; Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, The Empire of Flora, ca. 1743; Rembrandt van Rijn, Joris de Caulerij, 1632; Claude Monet, Water Lilies, ca. 1914–1917; Georges de La Tour, Old Woman and Old Man, ca. 1618–1619.
  • Ancient Art: Seneb, the royal scribe, ca. 1938-1850 BC, Egypt. Painted wood (probably sycamore)
  • Period Room: Salon Doré from the Hôtel de la Trémoille, Paris, ca. 1781, France. Gilt and painted wood, plaster, stone, mercury gilded glass.

The Legion of Honor also houses a café which features a variety of American and European classic menu items. Visitors may also be interested in visiting the Legion of Honor Museum Store, which boasts a distinguished variety of art history books, home décor items, classic jewelry and fine art gifts that mirror the works inside the museum.

Comments about Smart Destinations Legion of Honor:

This museum is not in the center of city but that is what makes the experience even more enjoyable. Excellent collection, glad I did not pass this over. Can take the city bus but also a taxi which is not expensive from Fishermans' Wharf .
