Palace of Fine Arts

Palace of Fine Arts Lagoon

Palace of Fine Arts
The Palace of Fine Arts was built in 1915 for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition and restored to its original splendor in 1967. Today, it is one of San Francisco's most spectacular backdrops — especially for wedding pictures.



Picnic Lunch
On weekends, the swan-filled lagoon and grassy area is an ideal place to relax, picnic, read a book and people-watch.

Stop by Luca Deli on Chestnut (it's been around since 1929) and pick up all fixings for a picnic lunch — they have fantastic deli food and can make up delicious sandwiches-to-go (you can even order online). They also offer a variety of salads, sides and beverages.

Two of our favorite San Francisco picnic places include the grassy area overlooking the water and the Palace of Fine Arts and the Marina Green (overlooking SF Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz).



Exploratorium
Science Museum
The Palace of Fine Arts landmark previously housed the Exploratorium Science Museum — the "hands-on" Museum of Science, Art and Human Perception.

Fun Event Locations
Host a fun VIP Dinner, Cocktail Reception or Special Event at this picturesque San Francisco venue.

Palace of Fine Arts
Theatre &
Rotunda
The Palace of Fine Arts Theatre & Rotunda can be rented separately or in conjunction with Exploratorium full-facility rental.
