Legion of Honor Reviews
ユニオンスクエアからバスを乗り継いで行きました。 途中、乗り継ぎのバスを間違えてしまい、時間をロスしましたが、ユニオンスクエアからだと各駅に止まるバスで1時間くらいだと思います。 ミュニパスポートを見せると2ドル割引してもらいました。 朝10時に到着したからか、人はあまりおらず静かにゆっくり見ることができました。 ロダンの作品やヨーロッパの作品が多いです。他にも一階（クロークやミュージアムショップ... more »I took a bus from Union Square. On the way, I made a mistake on the connecting bus and lost time, but i think it takes about an hour by bus that stops at each station from Union Square. When I showed my Muni passport, I got a discount of two dollars. Perhaps because i arrived at ten in the morning, there were not many people and I could see them quietly and slowly. Rodin's works and European works are many. There were also dishes and Egyptian items on the first floor (the floor with cloaks and museum shops). On the same day, the De Young Museum was also in the guidebook so we went around in an hour and a half.

Stunning views. Magnificent setting. Great art. All this in wonderful Bay Area setting. Cool, not hot and sticky like valley. No wonder this is many folks favorite city! Frisco is the greatest!! I left my heart in Frisco and most of my money too! Still it's well worth it.
I love museums and though this one was small, it's still a beautiful building that you have to see if you love architecture. It's also in a picturesque location where you can get a clear view of the golden gate bridge as long as its not too foggy. If you need a break from the crowds in the city, come check this place out, especially on a weekday. Parking is free here too, if you can find a spot.
