    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
