Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline, the Legion is most noted for its breathtaking setting. Its collections are notable for the Rodin masterworks, including the Thinker, European decorative arts and paintings, and 3,000 years of ancient art. The Legion of Honor has long been one of San Francisco’s most popular venues for unforgettable weddings and parties.
