    About Legion of Honor

    The Legion of Honor is open daily except for Mondays, Thanksgiving Day, and December 25. The museum’s working hours are 9:30 AM – 5:15 PM.   

    One of the best options is to visit the museum in the early morning hours to avoid crowds. It is better to do it during the workweek because the museum gets much busier on the weekend.   

    • Go back in time to the ancient world

    The Legion of Honor houses a massive collection of antiquities. Satisfy your curiosity by exploring Egyptian mummies and coffins, Greek and Romanian sculptures and painted vases, and a wide range of ancient art pieces from the Near East. 

    • Admire the rich collection of European art

    The museum halls contain Dutch, French, Flemish, and other European paintings from the 14th to early 20th centuries. Wandering through the galleries, you can find artworks by Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony van Dyck, and keep your eyes on striking Water Lilies by Claude Monet.    

    • Explore Auguste Rodin’s sculptures

    Artworks by the prominent French sculptor Auguste Rodin take pride in place in the museum collection. A massive bronze cast of his iconic The Thinker — one of the most recognizable statues in the world — welcomes visitors in the museum courtyard. Many other notable works are waiting for you inside the building. 

    The Legion of Honor is located in Lincoln Park in the northwest corner of San Francisco. The easiest way to get there is by bus. Take the 18 route, and the bus will bring you to the museum entrance. You can also take the 1 or 38 route, get off at 33rd Ave & Clement St or 33rd Ave & Geary Blvd, and then walk about half a mile to the museum.
