This museum displays more than just a fabulous collection of European and American art from antiquity to the 1900s. The building itself is a draw, with its beautiful Beaux-Arts architecture and unimaginable views from Lincoln Park down to the Golden Gate. In 1915, philanthropists Alma and Adolph B. Spreckels commissioned architect George Applegarth to design this three-quarter-scale replica of Paris's Palais de la Légion d'Honneur. Opened in 1924, the museum boasts decorative art, paintings from the 14th to early-20th centuries (including works by Picasso, Gainsborough, and Rubens), photography, and over 70 Rodin sculptures.
