The Legion of Honor


The Legion of Honor (or Palace of the Legion of Honor) is an art museum in San Francisco, CA. Current prices are about $12 per adult ticket, with members getting discounts. The De Young Asian art museum deservedly gets more attention. If you're a tourist, go to De Young, you can see old European art in any large American city and the Legion of Honor doesn't do it particularly well, but you won't find a whole museum devoted to Asian art many places in the U.S.. I guess if you're a tourist from Asia, then maybe the Legion of Honor is the better place.
