The Legion of Honor, Lincoln Park
The first thing you notice when you walk up to the museum… one of the original casts of Rodan’s, The Thinker. (and by Rodan I mean the famous French sculptor, not the giant bird-like creature that terrorized Japan when I was a kid). So you know it’s classy.
The museum features lots of European paintings, sculpture and decorative art… and between the various event spaces and galleries can accommodate anything from a private Board Dinner to a reception for 1,000. Note… the grounds of the museum have great views of the Golden Gate and the Pacific Ocean… but it is “way out there” at the edge of the continent… so depending on where your group is coming from and how they are arriving… you have to want to be there. But once there… it’s cool.
