Reviewed 12 March 2012

Amazing art inside, amazing views outside! The Cafe has elegant (and expensive) food. Lots of special events on weekends for all ages to enjoy.

“Amazing Museum and what a view!”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

I saw The Cult of Beauty exhibit and I loved it. The Museum is not too big and doesn't feel overwhelming. The building is beautiful and in a gorgeous setting. Hilltop in quieter side of the city with an amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was the best afternoon I spent in SF.

“good selection of art”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

The setting is nice; great views. The art selection is small but interesting. Strolling the grounds makes the trip worthwhile.

“World Class museum and exhibitions”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

As a local San Franciscan (part of the year), I visit the Legion of Honor at least 4 times each year. The museum is small enough to enjoy a good part of it in one day, the cafe is terrific, the setting is one of the best IN THE WORLD, the architecture and galleries are wonderful, etc. etc. etc. I also believe that the temporary exhibitions are without fail intelligently curated and presented. A must-see in San Francisco.

“Definitely A Point of Interest in San Francisco”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

We found this fine art museum to be a worthwhile visit, but as museum of fine art afficionados found that the Legion of Honor does not meet the benchmarks of the world's finest art galleries. Highlights of this museum include the Rodin collection and the friendly staff. The museum is easy to reach with public transit, and is beautifully set with magnificent park and bay views.
