Paid $10 per person to get in and they had a special exhibit which now I kind of regret not paying the $21 for but anyway, I digress. Such a photogenic place to take photos! We saw 3 brides being...

We love visiting this museum and find the exhibits interesting. It's easy to spend a half-day here and from our perspective is highly recommended.

This is a beautiful art museum with a wonderful collection. Great cafe too. We took our grandson who is only 10 and he liked it too. It's conveniently located in Golden Gate Park near lots of other attractions.

The Legion of Honor is a must see when in San Francisco. The building itself is picture perfect, the location unparalleled and the permanent collection is beautifully curated and easy to navigate. We just saw the High Style Exhibit from the Brooklyn Museum Collection and it is a must see for anyone interested in fashion, or just a feast for... More

Stunning display of women's clothes from the 1920's thru to 1970's. Make sure you get the headphones for their displays. Makes it easier yo follow. Well worth the visit.

The special exhibits are great, and the head sets with an explanation are clear, and a great addition to help explain what you are seeing. They are presented in a way that is both informative and fun. The cafeteria is not as good as the De Young Museum, but above the usual cafeteria food.

This is a beautiful museum located in Lincoln Park with views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The building is patterned after a building in Paris. The permanent collection is mostly French. There are many Rodin sculptures including a large Thinker.
