Formerly known as the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, and built in commemoration of Californians who gave their lives in WWI, the French neoclassical Beaux-arts building overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge houses a collection of 4,000 years of ancient and European art.
Collections include Rodin's Thinker, housed below the museum's distinctive pyramid skylight and surrounded by six additional galleries.
The collection also focuses on European decorative arts and paintings, Ancient art, and a large collection of prints and drawings.
