Really a lovely place to visit. The permanent collection is great and the temporary exhibits are always interesting.

“Beautiful Art Museum”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

The Legion of Honor is a beautiful art museum in a beautiful park-like setting close to the Golden Gate bridge. If you are not a huge art fan, you can easily see the whole museum in 2-3 hours, so if you find yourself wondering what to do one day in SF at 2pm, it is great to head over to the museum.

“Great art, distant location”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

The Rodin sculpture and paintings make the longish taxi ride worthwhile. Or you can take two (or three) buses to get there. After a morning at the museum, we took two buses to the Cliff House (overlooking the ocean) for lunch and that was worthwhile.

“Wow”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I haven't seen that many Rodin outside of France. They also have a nice collection of 19 Century French Impressionists (Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Van Gogh, just to name a few.)
