California Palace Of The Legion Of Honor, San Francisco Reviews
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Sublime art viewing experience! Orientation of the galleries is graceful and feels intuitive, even on a weekend visit to the Truth & Beauty exhibit it never felt overly crowded. There’s a wide range of lovely objects to elevate the soul. From ancient jewelry to Russian masters to modern sculpture, there’s something to delight every appetite! Plan a little extra time to take in the views from the trails at Lands End Lookout - the views outside rival the art inside.
This was an amazing museum. Although it isn't as large as some museums, I actually found that to be a wonderful thing - I saw virtually every piece in one afternoon and had just enough time to enjoy everything without feeling like I had to run to the next exhibit. The folks at the ticket counter gave us some great advice about out-of-state memberships (which saved us a ton of money). The "tour" headsets we're well worth it and the bits of the free guided tours we caught sounded very informative. Even outside, the grounds offer a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge and are filled with lovely plants. A must-see for those visiting San Francisco!
Lovely building above the bay. Prepare for cool temps & lots of walking. Parking is limited. Art exhibits are amazing so plan enough time. Membership is usually a good deal if you will visit more than once over a year as major exhibits change.
The biggest hidden gem by the bay! It's a pleasant place to get away from it all and relax for a while. The museum year round always has a great collection of art. And for the past years they've managed to get a Raphael or an old master for a rental during the summer period. That's a big testament of how hard this museum works, at bringing you the best art possible.
Meh. Not $28, but that's just me.. I'm not really an art lover. They did have some old furniture, pottery and Ancient Egyptian artifacts.. including two mummies that were pretty cool. The Islamic exhibit was very small and didn't do a good job of showing the importance of Muslim academia's important impact on today's science and medicine
