We were in town on business and discovered this by happenstance---and happened to be a wonderful discovery.
We picked a great day to visit. The weather was beautiful and on a Sunday with all the golfers playing alongside the road that leads up there it was a lovely setting. Not to mention the fabulous views from out the front. The exhibitions were wonderful, especially the Impressionism exhibition and the Rodin sculptures. Would recommend this to fellow art... More
Comfortable sized venue. Amazing concentration of fine art in an easily walkable space. People really seemed to be enjoying the exhibits.
Visited the Legion of Honor after a disappointing visit to the de Young. Much happier at the Legion of Honor. They have a large Rodin collection, as well as many other examples of classic art through the years. Even a few period-reproduction furnished rooms. Museum was clean and well kept. It was crowded, but people seemed generally respectful of each... More
The Legion of Honor Art Museum is one of the loveliest neoclassical buildings in San Francisco, situated in a stunning location. Right now the traveling shows are better than ever because the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is closed, so everything comes here or to the De Young in Golden Gate Park. The permanent collection at the Legion of... More

We also spent time in some of the other galleries and enjoyed that too. The audio tour for the rest of the... More
My wife and I recently were impressed by the Impressionist Exhibit. The displays include several different media (paintings, sketches, hand crafted historic books and sculptures). We were most pleased by the intimacy that the Legion of Honor exhibit permits between the viewer and each piece of artwork. At times we were literally inches away while viewing these priceless masterpieces.
My wife and I purchased a City Pass for our week visit to San Francisco and the Legion of Honor was one of the attractions available to visit on the vouchers (you can visit both the Legion of Honor and the de Young Museum if you do so on the same day). This museum is very interesting with a great... More
We live about 45 minutes from this wonderful museum and we visit almost every time it has a show that interests us. The museum frequently features shows of Impressionists and art both pre- and post-Impressionism. This museum is a little less crowded than those closer to the heart of SF and it makes viewing the artwork much more pleasant. One... More
