The setting and architecture of this museum are a huge part of the attraction here. The permanent collection isn't especially remarkable, and the exhibits often follow suit. However, the building itself, and the beautiful grounds are well worth a visit. The museum is nestled atop the high ocean cliffs just south of the Golden Gate Bridge, offering exquisite views of the bridge and the spectacular Marin Headlands to the north. The building was designed to replicate a specific French castle, of which I can't remember the name. I do know, however, that it is a beautiful building, with its marble tile, Roman columns and expansive courtyards. As I said, definitely worth a visit.
Pros: Architecture, Setting
Cons: Permanent Collection
