One of our Sustaining Friends just wrote: “Today i used my Brick Store membership card for admission to the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco!”

It makes it easy to budget and it helps the Museum control its cash flow. No more renewal forms or reminders. To become a Sustaining Friend, please call the Museum to set up your monthly donation at (207)985-4802. Your gift helps the Museum maintain its commitment to our community.
