We used the Munii #1 California bus to travel from Nob Hill to Lincoln Park and the Legion of Honor. The art museum had a sweet Matisse exhibit and a wonderful Anders retrospective. Anders Zorns paintings were new to me and fabulous. His images with water are extraordinary. We also heard a fun organ concert and I was impressed by the array of grand Rodin statues. Definitely worth a visit. From there we took the Muni #18 and # 38 to Cliffe House to watch the sunset and have a glass of wine (California of course) . Then took the #38 back to Union Square and the streetcar home. A good day out.

I enjoyed the visit. Eventhough the place is not big and the exhibited objects are very selected, in terms of origin and history, I loved the place. It's a very elegant building and its location is one of the best in the City. A visit is recommended

Was a little disappointed that most of the gallery is exhibitions that you have to pay for but nonetheless there is some gems to look at! Recommend taking the lift up to get a panoramic view of the whole city.

A lovely museum with beautiful view. Fascinating variety of art from around the world. Their special exhibitions are always extremely well done and the flower exhibition is so amazing.

The deYoung seems to get all the best exhibitions these days, but I always prefer to visit the Legion of Honor. The permanent collection is definitely worth seeing, and the building and setting are really lovely. It is a little like a visit to Europe, without the long plane ride.
