As museums of art go, this is pretty old school. There's some great art, but did you really come to San Francisco to see it. For me, the grounds in which the museum sit are the real treat. You can walk around, meander down some trails, and even get to the coast below. Views of the Golden Great Bridge are... More

One of the hidden gems in San Francisco is the Museum of the Legion of Honor. If you're an art lover, they have a relatively small but exceptional collection. If you're not a museum person, there's still plenty for you...the building is impressive, they have an excellent café...and the grounds are grand with breathtaking views of the bay. It makes...

Take the #18 bus from the city. Ask the driver to drop you off at the nearest point to the start of the road leading in to the grounds of Legion of Honor. It is a pleasant walk through the grounds of the Lincoln Park golf course. Magnificent builing set on a hill with splendid views over the San Francisco... More

There is a good permanent art collection and rotating visiting shows in this lovely building. It is located in a pretty park with a 9 hole golf course and some great views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

We took Lyft from downtown and really enjoyed our tour of this wonderful art museum. Impressive entrance and we liked the layout to view the artwork on display. Spent two hours here. Cafeteria had nice views to outside courtyard. Tuesdays are Free, but the nominal fee for admission would have been well worth it.

This museum changed the way I looked at art -- like most young people, I was enraptured by Impressionism and not much of anything else. The setting -- big, well lit rooms, a view of the Golden Gate Bridge outside -- encouraged me to look deeper into the Dutch masters, 18th C French painters, Medieval works, Rodin sculptures. It broadened... More

The grounds and common areas indoors served as a perfect venue for a delightful family wedding, overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and the Sea among pines and the stately museum.

This is one of my favorite museums in San Francisco. There are permanent collection is wonderful in and of itself. They have many classic impressionist pieces many painters from the 1600s and beyond. The Rodin sculpture collection is one of the best in the world. On Sunday afternoons they have organ recitals. To hear it best however one doesn't want... More

Beautiful building. Not overly crowded. Nice grounds (many Pokestops too), Mummy exhibit was interesting. Worth visiting, and enjoy the views on the way through the park!

We like to visit somewhere that tells us the history of where we are staying and this was the nearest we could find and its done through art. If you like art you will appreciate this place it is beautiful and get talking to the staff it makes the visit so much more interesting as they know their stuff.
