At the main entrance you will find Auguste Rodin's famous sculpture "The Thinker". A very different building in a modern city. It was not easy to return from the museum to the city by bus ...

Stopped by the museum to check out the thinker. It's accessible 24 7. I came here late in evening and it's very beautiful actually. After quick stops at China beach and lands end this one is very close and definitely worth visiting before catching return flight.

The museum itself has a permanent collection of Rodin sculptures when you first enter, as well a great collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art. Actually its 18th and... More

Not a bad ride. We did not eat there, too many people. It was a very rainy day. Nice gift shops. Mummy exhibit was nicely done Tuesday is... More

The museum, part of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco is a must visit. The permanent collection is comprehensive (European decorative art, ancient art) and the special exhibits are always a treat (the Brothers Le Nain and the Madeleine Albright pin collection are currently on display)
