Palace of Fine Arts
Palace of Fine Arts TicketsInspired by the stunning ruins left behind by the ancient Greeks and Romans, the Palace of Fine Arts was originally constructed for the 1915 World's Fair. It housed works of art for the Panama-Pacific Exposition (the World's Fair) and is one of the only structures built for the Expo that remains standing today. Built between the outbreak of the San Francisco fire and World War I, this homage to ancient culture continues to inspire beauty and hope. With its lagoon and sculptured grounds, it counts as a favored spot for weddings, concerts, corporate events and other happenings. Artists like Raffi, Hannah Gadsby, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Shawn Colvin and others have taken the stage here. You can grab your Palace of Fine Arts tickets at StubHub.

Are there other entertainment options nearby?Yes. Located near the Bay, the venue offers the history buff and the casual stroller alike some amazing entertainment. Embark on a cruise to Alcatraz Island where you can explore the cell house and hear the historical context for each nook and cranny of this famous landmark. Visitors who just can't get enough theater should visit the Berkeley Repertory Theatre or the San Francisco Mime Troupe. The San Francisco Symphony and the Oakland Orchestra count as just two of the fine arts houses in the area. The 49ers, the Raiders and the Golden State Warriors, to name but a few, call this area home. Plenty of minor league teams call the Bay Area home, too.
