Just another one of those breath taking spots in the city! I haven't actually gone inside the Legion of Honor, but exploring the park, statues, and looks out spots around it is enough to fill your day. This is a great spot to look out onto the Golden Gate Bridge. You can play golf, bike along the paths, and relax by the fountain or many statues within the grassy field. The actual Legion of Honor is a beautiful structure with a magnificent statue of the Thinking Man as you enter. It's the perfect spot to visit on a warm sunny afternoon.

Legion of Honor is such a beautiful museum inside and out. I almost felt like I was in some European country. It certainly isn't quite the Louvre but the collection is still impressive. They have mostly European paintings, statues and some ancient art.
Take your date here on a sunny day and stroll through the gallery. Watch the sunset at the park outside afterward and finish the day with a nice romantic dinner in the city. It doesn't get better than this, does it?
Parking could get difficult on the weekend so plan to come here early.

I must agree with the other reviews. Very good food, service and ambiance is really nice to spend an afternoon with your girlfriend. The very best exhibits grace these doors and the food is just a dessert to all that candy.
I visited this place about 8 visits so far this year and really never a negative experience. Highly recommended!

The last time I've been to this museum was maybe 1-2 years ago. I took my wife there to view a pottery exhibit. Most of the time, the museum offers a variety of interesting art from all over the world. Just beware that weekends are the most crowded days, and the lines can get dauntingly long. They apparently also offer reservations, so we'll definitely take advantage of this in the future.

This place is a hidden gem in San Francisco. I've lived in SF for 6 years and just recently came here!! We saw the Annie Lebowitz exhibit here and it was beautiful. The outside of the site is breathtaking! I can see why so many couple get their wedding photos here!

I have been to the Legion of Honor several times and have really enjoyed it each and every time. Ive been to museums in Europe and this Fine Arts Museums collection and exhibits are the closest in comparison to any European collection as there is on the West Coast. Im not big on Modern Art so I dont understand why locals fuss over MOMA, for art you can actually admire the Legion is the place to visit.

The setting and architecture of this museum are a huge part of the attraction here. The permanent collection isn't especially remarkable, and the exhibits often follow suit. However, the building itself, and the beautiful grounds are well worth a visit. The museum is nestled atop the high ocean cliffs just south of the Golden Gate Bridge, offering exquisite views of the bridge and the spectacular Marin Headlands to the north. The building was designed to replicate a specific French castle, of which I can't remember the name. I do know, however, that it is a beautiful building, with its marble tile, Roman columns and expansive courtyards. As I said, definitely worth a visit.
