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 museum. 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 Achenback Foundation for Graphic Arts. Highlights of the collections include works by El Greco, Peter Paul Rubens, Auguste Rodin, Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn, Claude Monet and Fra Angelico. Perhaps Rodin's best-known monumental work, the Thinker, dominates the Legion's outdoor Court of Honor.

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 .
