Find your way to the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, known to most locals as the Legion of Honor, located in the Richmond District of San Francisco. Be sure to bring your camera for views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Pacific Ocean, and the Marin Headlands from the surrounding area.
The impressive building is a replica of Paris' the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur, gifted to the city by Alma de Bretteville Spreckels in the early 20th century. Spend some time viewing the stunning exterior and architecture before presenting your admission ticket and proceeding inside.
Walk through the collection of over 124,000 works at your leisure, stopping to take in the sculptures, paintings, ancient art from the Mediterranean basin, and the largest collection of works on paper in the Western United States. Must-see pieces include an original cast of Rodin's 'The Thinker' and the flawlessly restored Salon Doré of the Hôtel de la Trémoille, one of the finest examples of French Neo-classical architecture in the United States.
Audio tours and Special Exhibits are not included in your general admission ticket, but are available as upgrades.
