Traveled throughout US and this is one of the best Museums - was fortunate to see special show with items from Louve in Paris - Museum allows non-flash photos of regular exhibits -

“Beautiful location, great range of art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

I've always liked the location of this museum. The great ocean views nearby and architecture make this a popular spot for photo shoots. The museum itself it great too, a smaller sized art museum with a great range of art work, there are some great 19th century impressionists work here and a permanent collection of sculptures by Rodin.

“The grandeur of times past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Stunning setting. Always fun to watch wedding photo shoots if there during the day. Our last visit was in the evening and the play of light and shadow made it spectacular.

“A Very Special Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

This little gem of a museum is worth the trip. Its nestled on top of a hill that overlooks the Golden Gate Bridge and most of the bay interior. The view is awesome a clear day and worth a walk around the grounds. The museum its self is small but very special. It was a surprisingly huge collection of Rodin sculptures. If you want to explore San Fran like a local you should include this museum on your itinerary for sure.

“Legion of Honor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Many of the world's artwork is displayed at this landmark. Start with the "Thinker" on a pesdestal in front of the museum. The views from the adjacent park will show you some of the beauty of this magnificent city of San Francisco right near the golf course.
