The Legion of Honor Museum is my favorite museum in San Francisco. Located on a hill overlooking the city and Golden Gate Bridge, the views are fantastic. The permanent colleection consists of excellent examples of many periods. My favorites are 2 George de la Tour paintings, the collection of French furniture, the ceiling from a
Spanish castle, and Dutch still life paintings. A lovely way to spend several hours without feeling overwhelmed.
Great special exhibits too. Organ concerts are fun on weekend afternoons.
