    Architecturally inspiring -amazing views to the Golden Gate Bridge. Rodin's The Thinker frames the entrance, setting the tone for a unique collection. From medieval to modern art, Rodin to porcelain.

    A tiny gem of a museum with a fantastic selection of furniture, medieval & romantic paintings. Bike out on a Saturday morning, and walk around the coast trail afterwards. Good temporary exhibits, too.

    This is an awesome Museum/Gallery. There are more art exhibits and displays here more than one can see in a day. Check out all the photos that visitors have taken at this magnificent place.

    My favorite chilling place in SF. There may have concert(chamber music, organ) sometimes. After having enough fun in the museum, you can simply go down to lends end to enjoy a sunset view.

    Much better art-museum than expected. Not sure why I assumed it would not be impressive, as I was surely proved wrong. A great collection and great featured exhibits! A must-see for art-lovers.

    A SF hidden gem - museum has a real Claude Monet water lily painting! Worth the admission - great view and artwork.

    Beautiful surrounding (golden gate bridge visible) and museum. Get a map at the counter because some of the more valuable exhibits are in rooms toward the back on both sides

    Views from parking lot are as impressive as the collections. Small museum with excellent collection. Leave some time to walk around outside.

    The organ recitals on Sat/Sun 4pm are great. Organists play everything from classical, My Fair Lady tunes to the soundtrack from Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times.

    If traveling w/ physically handicapped/senior citizens, you can enter/exit thru the side Emergency Exit glass doors, on the lower level near the Cafe & Sculpture Garden, by first speaking w/ a guard.

    Incredible views of the city and Rodin’s Thinker, which sits in the museum’s front courtyard, make the Legion a must.

    There is no better place to experience San Francisco's unwelcoming fog than from the Legion's peaceful front entrance. Check out the touring exhibit if it sounds interesting, or just go for the view.

    On Saturday & Sunday, admission is free at 4:30pm - 5:00pm. Come listen to the pipe organ played by a master. The sweet spot is inside in the middle of the rotunda between the entry & the keyboard.

    If you eat at the Museum Cafe, go for the BLT, and have them add a bit of Brie for an extra dose of deliciousness! Mmmmmmmm

    If you don't have time or the patience to visit inside the museum, go for a hike along the ocean en route to it. Incredible views of GG Bridge.

    This place would be a lot better if the curators didn't carry on conversations among themselves so loudly. The organ playing is amazing.

    A three-quarter-scale version of the one in Paris (Palais de la Légion d'Honneur). So much great art!

    If you want to see SOME nice paintings and not being the whole day in a museum, this one is for you. I don't recommend you the concerts because the walls are not real and the acoustic is horrible.
