Lovin the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco
January 2, 2006By: Mary Winston Nicklin
The Thinker

This is by far San Fran's most gorgeous museum. The setting alone is well worth a gape. On view from its perch above the Pacific: the GG bridge, the Marin headlands, and the dazzling white cityscape. And standing guard in front: the huge statue of Rodin's Thinker, musing from his seat inside the museum's courtyard. And of course, if you can tear yourself from the view, the museum's permanent collection is pretty fantastic: over 4,000 pieces of ancient and European art. On view now is a fascinating exhibit titled "After the Ruins, 1906 and 2006: Rephotographing the San Francisco Earthquake and Fire," containing over 75 paired photographs of then and now.
