Fodor's Review

Hugging the park's western border, this 1925 Willis Polk–designed structure houses gorgeous Depression-era murals of familiar San Francisco scenes, while verses by local poets adorn niches here and there. Stop by the ground-floor visitor center and gift shop on your way to indulge in a microbrew upstairs, ideally at sunset.
