“great venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

it's a great venue for seeing some very fine art exhibits but, if you are staying in the city hotel district and you want to get there without much trouble, take the 38L express muni to 33rd and then take the 18 to the museum because it's a long, uphill walk from 33rd. The view is fantastic up there, also.

“Look for exhibition!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Nice place, especially on Sundays where there are concerts. The permanent collection is modest, so you better look for some interesting exhibition - and there happen to be many of them

“A French Landmark by the Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

The museum is set in a spectular site, views of the ocean and the city. It is a Little Legion of Honor so the architecture is very inviting and reminescent of Paris. The collection is certainly not The Metropolitan Museum in NYC but it is worth seeing. The Achenbach graphic collection is important . The cafe is good. If you have made it this far west in SF be sure to view the GG Bridge and the Head Lands but contiue back to Geary Street and drive or bus toi the newly redone Cliff House. The views of the Ocean and the Marin coast are good and the brunch is theirt best meal, pop overs are an all time favorite.

Love, love, love the Legion. You can visit the gallery, marvel and the art, and then hike the trails down below. Lovely way to spend a day.
