This is a curious museum but full of high quality European art. A delicious Seurat for instance. $10 is good value and the galleries are lovely. It sits in a lovely park with a great walk down by the sea with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate.

This is one of the only reaming peaces of Architecture from the Panama–Pacific International Exposition, (Worlds fair of 1915) it is now 100 years old. It is such a nice FREE spot to walk around and or have a picnic on the lawn

I've been here twice for different exhibits. It is a nice museum. The thinker statue out front is impressive. The museum hosts many traveling exhibits and there are often many interesting things to see here. Not the biggest museum in the city, but really nice displays.

Check out whatever special show they have and also the regular art collection; don't miss the Rembrandt and Monet. Lovely setting; very good food.

Get a good view of the bay from here. Good for an evening stroll. It is a good place even when it is closed.

Can really recommend this museum. I don't know a lot about art, but the way in which the exhibits are presented makes this an educational experience.

The art is great, it feels European, the land surrounding is lovely, and the views of the Bay and Marin County are grand!

This is a probably your Louvre on the Bay. Its art collection is magnificent. All great classical art movements and schools are represented in this small but wonderful museum. The Rodin sculptures are breathtaking. The seasonal exhibits are well planned and an encyclopaedia in itself.

Coming up the front steps, I was treated to a double rainbow over the bay. Will try to post photo but in haste to buy lottery ticket.
