For anyone appreciating an art or architecture, the Legion of Honor is a place to be. Magnificent Beaux-Art building perfectly located in Lincoln Park charms you from first sight. I would recommend seeing this gorgeous museum from April to October. Enjoy it!

This fine arts museum on the top of the hill overlooking San Francisco Bay was donated by the Spreckels sugar family. The museum hosts famous sculpture, The Thinker by Rodin. Lots of free parking on site.
