Beautiful museum. Not only the artwork, but also the building itself, surrounding grounds and view. Well worth to spend half a day here. Combine your visit with a trip to Golden Gate Park and the De Young Museum which can be visit with your ticket as well. Great value for money.

The tour was as described and the Legion of Honor as always had a good exhibit. However the ticket I printed on line from you was no end of trouble. We had to speak with four different people and no noe recognized or knew what the ticket was even thought it contained a bar code. They finally let us in and
still did not know it included an audio tour but eventually did let us have it.
