Know More about this tour

With your admission ticket in hand, head to the California Palace of the Legion of Honor (known informally as the Legion of Honor), located in Lincoln Park overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, where the Pacific spills into San Francisco Bay. A gift of Alma de Bretteville Spreckels to the city of San Francisco in the early 1900s, this stunning building is a replica of the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur along the Seine in Paris, and its epic location makes this hidden gem one of the city’s greatest treasures.
Explore the museum’s extensive collection of more than 124,000 works of art, including European paintings, sculptures and decorative arts; ancient art from the Mediterranean basin; and the largest collection of works on paper in the American West. The permanent collection reflects a history of patronage by its founders, whose focus was 18th- and 19th-century French art.
Don’t miss one of the 28 original casts of Rodin's The Thinker statue and the must-see Salon Doré of the Hôtel de la Trémoille exhibit, reopening in the fall of 2013. This is one of the finest examples of French neoclassical interior architecture in the world.
Be sure to bring your camera, because after your time at the museum, you can walk a bit down the road for incredible views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands in the distance.

  • Very enjoyable and inspiring. Viator's directions were quite helpful.

  • Beautiful museum. Not only the artwork, but also the building itself, surrounding grounds and view. Well worth to spend half a day here. Combine your visit with a trip to Golden Gate Park and the De Young Museum which can be visit with your ticket as well. Great value for money.

  • A stunning building containing a stunning art classic art collection. The café is very nice too.

  • The tour was as described and the Legion of Honor as always had a good exhibit. However the ticket I printed on line from you was no end of trouble. We had to speak with four different people and no noe recognized or knew what the ticket was even thought it contained a bar code. They finally let us in and
    still did not know it included an audio tour but eventually did let us have it.
