Great Art Museum. Has a good collection of scuptures by Rodan. Good view of Golden Gate too.

Love to see the new collections they have. Great old paintings by famous artist on display all the time.

The Legion of Honor's current Monet exhibit is not to be missed. Two years in the making, the exhibit includes more than 50 of Monet's early paintings, a few of which have only been exhibited two or three times in the last 100 years. Worth a journey.

The Legion of Honor is located in Lincoln Park, with a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge. We only saw the special Monet exhibit, which is about to leave, but the rest of the Museum is worth a visit as well.

I had an amazing time at the Legion. I was lucky to see the early works of Monet as well as other amazing artists. I wish I had more than 3 hours as the collection is vast.

The museum is having an early Monet exhibit. This is before impressionism become famous. I love the organization of the exhibit, following different cities he lived: le Harve, Paris, London, and Agentuille. You can see his transition from traditional landcape paintings to impressionism. But the special exhibit can be crowded even for a Wednesday. The rest of the museum is... More

The building and the grounds are art in themselves. The views are wonderful extras. We came to see the Monet early years. It is a grand showing of his work and set in a classic gallery. If you live close enough to the city it's wise to become a member and get tickets for the de Young as well.

location is perfect, was a sunny and warm day. Restaurant in museum has very nice food and a great outdoor terrace. Current exhibit of Monet's early work was unique- not a water lily in sight and some fine works.

Went for Monet the early years but stayed for the Rodin. Enjoyed the special exhibit immensely. Stayed after to see the Rodins. Easy to get around and see the collections. Also liked the restaurant for lunch. A little pricey but good food. Will definitely go back.
