This museum has something for everyone. We love do the hike by the golf course and making our way up to the museum. You will see some of the best views of both the city and the Golden Gate bridge. The art collection is amazing and every changing. We are members and go almost every month. Don't forget to swing... More

So I am from the area, and have lived here for about 2 years, and usually went to the Deyoung. I had heard of the "Legion of Honor; but dismissed it. Then I was looking for somewhere to go with my 3 year old on a day off from work. Children's museum was too far away. So I came here.... More

Away from the "touristy" parts of San Francisco, the Legion of Honor sits on the top of a hill in parkland with views back into the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. The galley spaces contain a high quality collection of European art up to the impressionist period. This is really a different side to SF that I strongly encourage... More

The Legion of Honor and surrounding area is one of my favorite places to go in San Francisco. I was up at the Legion the other weekend and was reminded of how much I love this place. The facility itself is relatively small, and as a semi-local, I usually only pop in to see the special exhibits which amounts to... More

Grande experience of opera singing in the marble rotunda of the Rodin room. The glorious sounds and wonderful works of art made for a truly memorable afternoon!

Many folks are not aware of this museum but its one of the best kept secrets of the SF. Its located on a pretty spot where the views are great. The museum does not get as crowded as De Young and you can see a lot in a relaxed way. We never found parking to be a problem. The same... More

It's a wonderful art exhibit and worth your time in the park to stop and see this. The Rodin's out side and the view of the city alone is worth the drive so take the time to see this wonderful place. I hope you have time along with all the other sights in the park with so much entertainment to... More

Despite what the name suggests, Legion of Honor is not a military museum. Instead, this is the museum of European arts as a part of the San Francisco fine arts museum system. As impressive as the Greco-Roman temple architecture, Legion of Honor's art collection is definitely worth checking out! The museum architecture is a masterpiece of its own: a fine... More

This is my favorite San Francisco art museum. The rooms are beautiful and intimate and there is a good variety in the displays.
