The Legion of Honor, San Francisco: 28 reviews and 76 photos
The Palace of the Legion of Honor is actually an art museum in Lincoln Park but was designed as a memorial to California's World War I casualties. It is even an exact replica of the Legion of Honor Palace in Paris, right down to the inscription HONNEUR ET PATRIE above the portal. Inside the museum is impressive but only if you pay the entrance fee or buy a San Francisco City pass. The museum's permanent collection covers 4,000 years of art and includes paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts from Europe, as well as international tapestries, prints, and drawings. The chronological display of 4,000 years of ancient and European art includes one of the world's finest collections of Rodin sculptures.
