     The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, comprising the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park, is the largest public arts institution in San  Francisco.
 
     The de Young originated from the 1894 California Midwinter International Exposition and was established as the Memorial Museum in 1895. Thirty years later, it was renamed in honor of Michael H. de Young, a longtime champion of the museum. The present copper-clad landmark building, designed by Herzog and de Meuron, opened in October 2005. It showcases the institution’s significant collections of American painting, sculpture, and decorative  arts from the 17th to the 21st centuries; art from Africa, Oceania, and the Americas; costume and textile arts; and international modern and contemporary art.
 
      The Legion of Honor was inspired by the French pavilion, modeled on the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur in Paris, at San Francisco’s Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915.  The museum opened in 1924 in a neoclassical building designed by George Applegarth on a bluff overlooking the Golden Gate. Its holdings span 4,000 years and include European painting, sculpture, and decorative arts; ancient art from the Mediterranean basin,  and the largest collection of works on paper in the American West.

     Both the de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor offer unique experiences for groups of all kinds. Visit a special exhibition, explore the extensive permanent collection, discover  the architecture and gardens, and enjoy both casual and fine dining. It is a great place for groups to meet and learn about fine arts.
