Description

The Legion of Honor sounds like an assembly of superheroes, but it's not. However, it is an unrivaled collection of art. See over 124,000 works of art spanning 4,000 years, from European sculpture and paintings to ancient art from the Med and Near East. Its most famous piece is Rodin's The Thinker, but there's plenty of other highlights by Degas, Monet, Rubens and more.

This neoclassical museum's huge collection of art is waiting to wow you. The setting (overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge in Lincoln Park) could hardly be more spectacular. And inside? More than 124,000 works of art! Beauty, everywhere you look.

The collection of European Decorative Arts and Sculpture includes The Thinker by Auguste Rodin - the 6-foot bronze emblem of the museum, made in the image of poet Dante. Stop by here and think about art and poetry for a while.

Other highlights include French 18th-century furniture, the Bowles collection of English porcelain, three French period rooms, and a tea table and tea service by Fabergé.

Through August 26, 2018 The Future of the Past: Mummies and Medicine exhibition has two mummies on an interactive virtual dissection table. So make sure to come here and bring your virtual dissection kit.

Your ticket also includes access to de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. De Young has a stellar collection of painting, sculpture and decorative objects.

I arrived at the Legion of Honor too late to make good use of my discount ticket..however, the staff was very kind and I was afforded great consideration; I was issued an entry pass so as not to lose the value of the discount admission ticket....And while I don't recommend arriving late at any SF museum...as the Legion of Honor's exhibitions and collection are outstanding...please do take advantage of Tiqets' values.
Also, if it's the first time you've ever tried to do without a paper ticket confirmation...there are complexities to using your SmartPhone to validate the discount entry ticket...again, the museum staff took time to deal with my iPhone themselves...but..it was the end of the day and no one else was in line for entry...so learn how to use your Smartphone for ticketing before arriving at the museum! And thanks for your discount system!

Extremely busy on a Saturday. That was expected...however, only having one bathroom inside for the extreme amount of people was frustrating and didn't seem right.

Please consider using this service. There are many excellent and culturally valuable places to visit...but entry fees can be substantial...preventing citizens and tourists from benefitting from attendance....We Need this ticket service because fees are high and many institutions that are tax supported, and receive extensive support from foundations, still have high entry fees...USE Tiqets! and you will benefit!

Lovely exhibit
Aug 17, 2017
Loved the Degas exhibit with the antique hats. My only criticism was we had a hard time following the sequencing of exhibits using the audio tour. Not logically done and very confusing.
I highly recommend the Legion's cafe. Above average food in a pleasant atmosphere.

The Monet exhibit was excellent. Take one of the scheduled docent tours. Also the mummy exhibit was well worth stopping to view.

Web site did not make it clear that admission ticket does not cover special exhibit. Had to get in line at the museum and pay some more.
