Salon Doré Map

Although the Legion of Honor’s new presentation of the Salon Doré is the first of its kind in an American museum, there are several other similar French period rooms in Europe, the United States, and beyond. Compare the Salon Doré’s new installation with other 18th-century period rooms around the world in this interactive map.

The Salon Doré: History

Since its first known installation in 1781, the Salon Doré has been moved seven times, including its most recent renovation. Following the fortunes of aristocrats, collectors, and art dealers, the period room finally made its way into the permanent collection of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in 1959.
