Legion of Honor might sound like an epic Sean Connery film but in reality it's actually the most beautiful museum in San Francisco. A three-quarter-scaled version of Paris's Palais de la Légion d'Honneur, the Legion of Honor also marks the western end of the Lincoln Highway, the first road across America.
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge and all of San Francisco, the Legion of Honor is most noted for its breathtaking setting. Its collections span over 6,000 years of ancient and European art, including Rodin's Thinker, which sits in the museum's Court of Honor, and one of the largest collections of prints and drawings in the country. From now until the end of the year, you can listen to a free concert every Saturday and Sunday at 4pm featuring the museum's Skinner Organ, one of the few indoor / outdoor organs every made. Leaders, take note!
Meeting point: At the ticket counter. Getting to the Legion of Honor is easy using Muni - the 18 stops right in front of the museum. Tickets cost $10 but you can get a $2 discount if you present your Muni Fast Pass or transfer stub. Booyah!
Leaders, the Museum is open from 9:30am to 5:15pm, except on Mondays when it's closed.
