information about Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
Comprised of the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park, it is the largest public arts institution in the City of San Francisco and one of the largest art museums in the United States. The de Young Museum is located in Golden Gate Park and is San Francisco's oldest museum. Its collections include American paintings, decorative arts and crafts, and arts from Africa, Oceania and the Americas, as well as western and non-western textiles. Long known as the City's Museum, the de Young is particularly recognized for its many educational arts programs for children and adults. The de Young will re-open in Golden Gate Park in Summer 2005. The de Young Art Center is the interim education facility for the Fine Arts Museums during construction of the new de Young. The Center offers a variety of free arts programs for children, families, school groups, educators and the general public. It is located at 2501 Irving Street (at 26th Avenue). For more information, please contact cinaba@famsf.org , 415.682.2485. The Legion of Honor was built to commemorate Californian soldiers who died in World War I. The Legion of Honor is a beautiful Beaux-arts building located in San Francisco's Lincoln Park, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge and all of San Francisco. The Legion is most noted for its breathtaking setting. Its collections include Rodin's Thinker, which sits in the museum's Court of Honor, European decorative arts and paintings, Ancient art, and one of the largest collections of prints and drawings in the country.
