I am a native San Franciscan and have visited The Legion of Honour since I was in a stroller! At 74 years young, I’m still in awe of this wonderful magical place, where time stands still for me with overflowing memories.

Legion Visit
We went for the John Singer Sargent exhibit and enjoyed that very much. But, I still LOVE the resident exhibits at the Legion. Always comforting to see Bouguereau’s The Broken Pitcher and Makovsky’s, Russian Bride…
