Join the Haggin Museum Department of Travel as we journey to the Legion of Honor in San Francisco to view Early Rubens, an exhibition of 50 works of one of the most extraordinary artists of the 17th century, Peter Paul Rubens. This exhibition focuses on the artist’s most innovative period of production, 1603-1620. Several of the paintings you will view have never left Europe; others have never been shown on the West Coast. Ruben’s paintings are known to be among the crowning achievements of the Baroque period of Europe. Enjoy a no-host lunch at the Legion of Honor Café.
In the afternoon we will board the bus and travel to the Conservatory of Flowers, an intensely valuable landmark in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. The Greenhouse and Botanical Garden, completed in 1879, houses a collection of rare and exotic plants. Stroll along pathways with our tour guide, or on your own, to view rare blooms in the five beautiful galleries of the oldest remaining municipal wooden conservatory in the nation.
