A wonderful art gallery which should be high on your list of you are interested in European art. The building is stunning and the colour scheme reflects the period pieces displayed thoughtfully throughout this two floor gallery. There is an audio guide available and two tours run daily, these come highly recommended as otherwise it is easy to get overwhelmed. The huge Rodin collection is essential and the awe inspiring statues will leave you breathless. Ample free parking and a beautiful vista view towards the golden gate bridge can be experienced outside the gallery.
Legion of Honour. The name says it all. Why wouldn’t you come here? The art collection, building architecture and surrounding area are exquisite. The facility holds a grand collection of the great Auguste Rodin which is really quite eye-opening. I hadn’t realised how skilled this man was until you look at the artwork up close and personal. Would definitely recommend a visit as you can visit lands end in one hit.
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.
Breathtaking location...views from the multiple parking lots are wonderful. Superb - if not pricey - restaurant is really a delight. Great shows come and go ...spend time on both levels and explore the dazzling Impressionism Collection. Very impressive: the famous Rodin statue of "The Thinker" greets you as your enter.
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.
