The Legion of Arts Museum is a must-see gem of a fine arts museum to visit. if you get the city pass, there is a $2 discount. And there are senior and student rates (about $7 or $8 to get in- fully worth it!) There is a wonderful collection of Rodin sculpture (The Thinker, The Kiss,etc), El Greco paintings, a... More

Beautiful. If you don't have time to go inside, the outside is still worth the stop as you drive through S.F.

I really appreciated the size and collections of the museum. The smaller venue allowed for a slower-paced, self-guided tour. By the end of my visit I felt enriched and honored to have been exposed to the great artists from times past, and the various art mediums used to achieve their fine results. I ended the day at the museum's cafe... More

The Legion Of Honor is one of my two favourite museums in San Francisco. Its location overlooks Lincoln Park and the Golden Gate Bridge. I also enjoy watching golfers on the course as I drive up to the museum. I usually visit the Legion of Honor on a weekday morning when street parking is easy to obtain. A ticket to... More

This place can be crowded on weekends. We came during the week and although there were people there, we often had the entire room to ourselves. How lovely that is to look at the art and talk amongst your family about what we are seeing. Photography is allowed without a flash. Without the crowds, we had fun taking creative shots... More

I was visiting one of my best friends and she's taken me here. I didn't think much of it in the beginning but I saw that every room was themed differently. I learned so much just from spending a day there.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my visit to LH per Hitchcock's movie Vertigo. The museum houses excellent permanent collections as well as traveling exhibits. Sculptures, European art, photography, ancient art and deco art are some of the gems you will see. The french styled architecture is also impressive! Must be on anyone's itinerary!
