There was a fashion exhibit I wanted to see (which I'm glad I saw) but I don't think I would recommend a visit here if there are no traveling exhibits that interest you. They have some big name artists but none of their major works. The museum is quite small and its collections offer a survey of European art and... More

This section of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco contains its permanent European collection. American art is at the DeYoung Musuem. At the Legion there are about 15 permanent collection galleries. Renaissance art is probably most highly represented. The collection is weak in Impressionist art (about four paintings on display) and has almost no paintings of more recent schools... More

I really don't know what to say, this is one of my favorite spots in the City. Having lived in San Francisco for 10 yrs and another 5 in Marin I very often went to the Legion. Now whenever I visit the city I make it a point to spend some time at the Legion. One of my favorite areas... More

Very interesting museum depending on what's presented, you can actually spend two to three hours there. Don't forget to venture outside as well. I believe the first Tuesdays of every month us free.

The Wandering Yank here again. My friends and I spent maybe 90 minutes here and saw everything, from Medieval and Renaissance art to Impressionists to the Rodin sculptures. It's a beautiful location on a clear day, atop a hill in the Presidio. One of the best things going for this museum is it's large enough to have some world-class pieces,... More

It's a challenge to get to if using the city buses but a great museum. See with Fine Arts Museum - they have complementary exhibits. I really enjoyed the Impressionist exhibits.

Swung by here as I was touring the area. It was a beautiful day and they have some sculptures on display, etc. The museum was closing soon so didn't feel like paying the $30 for a 15 minute tour, but from I could see -- looks awesome inside too.

Small but perfectly formed as art galleries go, this institution has a fine range of works from across the centuries from Greek antiquities to medieval altar pieces to Rodin and the Impressionists. Don't miss spectacular porcelain displayed in the light-filled lower rooms. Very good gift shop too :)
