Legion Of Honor
This museum houses more than 87,000 paintings, sculptures, decorative arts and tapestries. Some pieces date back 4,000 years. The main floor is dedicated to the museum's permanent collection, much of which features the works of Rodin. European and ancient art are also on display at the Legion of Honor. The lower garden level features temporary exhibitions, ranging from Andy Warhol to Francis Bacon. Take a break in the museum cafe, which features light snacks and has outdoor seating. The gift shop, though small, has a nice selection of postcards, books, posters, jewelry and some reproductions from this and other fine arts museums.

My aunt took me here nearly 40 years ago. We never went inside, we walked the grounds...I frequently dream of the sculptures and the park setting, so close to the ocean and sutro ruins....I am planning a trip in '08, to bring my hubby and kids. My heart can't wait!
Great art at the Legion of Honor, and the outside architecture with a mixture of nature! Go for a walk, relax in the grass and enjoy the sun! Not far away are many other outdoor activities to do as well. Outdoor activities with some history, city views, ocean views and golfing...right next door.
As my subject title states....any museum that represents those "Three Rs"....you really are blessed in just that. However, you add Monet and Bougereau and it's a done deal for Fine Art satisfaction!!! As an artisan myself I must say It's one of my favorite museums of all.
I in fact enjoyed it. i'm a young black male with very different interests but it was pretty interesting. It was a quite beautiful building and though I was woke at 8 o'clock in the morning on a sunday to witness it, I feel it was definitely worth the while of going and would strongly recommend other young people to go check it out. Sure it's not the "norm" for me but ya gotta try new things.
Youth curiosity and exploration did not feel encouraged despite the fact that the students were eager to learn more. It would have been very helpful to have staff explaining style and the time period of the artist to better understand how that played into the style. However, the value of the art itself was amazing. Very impressive content.
I visited this beautifull pleace today with my family and we enjoyed walked at the park too.
but I dropped my photo camera close to the beach I feel so sad because I have in that memory card my best family memories if somebody found it I have a reward for you please give me a call. (707)315 53 27
Thank's God Bless you
ok i agree with all the previous reviewers' comments about the second or third city status of the permanent collection, BUT the Monet in Normandy exhibition is so spectacular, you all should go see it now!!! After being blown away by the beauty, depth and just painterly qualities of this 60 canvas show, i wandered upstairs and was equally mesmerized by the Rodins sculptures. This is the only significant collection of Rodins outside of Paris and is stunningly displayed and explained.
I really loved the setting for this building; beautiful location overlooking the Bay and ocean. And set in the Presidio, so the landscaping is really nice.
The building is a beautiful piece of architecture and I enjoyed the photo opportunity that afforded.
The paintings and sculptures; as well as period rooms, furniture and pottery are varried and will keep an art lover busy for hours. I would definitely recommend seeing this lovely museum, it was worth the time and money. I know I can't wait to go back!
