Description

This statue is a replica of a sculpture in Washington D.C. Two additional replicas can be found in Dublin, Ireland and Emmetsburg, Iowa.

It memorializes Robert Emmet, an Irish nationalist and rebel leader who led a rebellion against British rule in 1803. He was captured by the British, tried and executed for high treason against the British king.

The statue was donated to the city in 1919 by former mayor and Irish supporter, James D. Phelan.

Location

In front of the entrance to the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park’s Music Concourse
