How blessed are we to have access to viewing some of the most ancient and European Art right here in San Francisco? Visiting the exquisite Beaux-Arts building on a cloudless day overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge will have you wandering the museum and it's surroundings with ease. Looking back in time, the Legion of Honor began as the French pavilion in San Francisco’s Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915.
Nowadays photography, ancient art, works on paper, European paintings and much more can be seen here, as the wide variety of art will leave you open minded and artistically inclined. After you stroll through the rooms and halls of the museum, visit the cafe for an fresh take on American and European foods complemented with an espresso to feel as if you have been transported to France. Visit the Legion of Honor website for more information about current and future exhibits, directions and ticket information. After your time at the museum, walk the trails of Lands' End all the way to the historic Sutro Baths.
