Near the Golden Gate Bridge lies San Francisco's Legion of Honor museum, which displays a wide variety of paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, examples of fine interior design and craftsmanship, and even mummies. Additionally, the pavilion itself is an impressive replica of the 18th-century Palace of the Legion of Honor in Paris and boasts commanding architecture and site location near the Golden Gate. Rodin's Thinker (1880) lies in the museum's Court of Honor and is one of the most viewed sculptures in the museum. In addition to showcasing an impressive variety and depth in the permanent collection, the Legion of Honor regularly displays exhibitions that highlight themes and showcase rotating collections. Sections of the Legion of Honor are also available for special events and private functions.
