“history”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

Place where many wedding pictures are taken and tour usfor photo ops at this historical landmark. Periodic swans swimming...Unfortunately, area is very small but if you walk about 500 meters North towards the water's edge in the GGNRA, your walk will be rewarded with a scenic view of the bay and GG Bridge. I am a native SF who rides his bike in this area for fresh air and scenic indulgence.

“Just explore it all”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

As you may have read in one of my other reviews, the bike is an excellent means of transportion in this town. But you have to be a bit sporty with the hills and all...... Even if you decide to do some sightseeing by car this is a place to visit. And if you don´t want to go inside and pay admission, the grounds surrounding it are also worth it.

“Classical art museum”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

When I went, they had the original Magna Carta here. This place is more me than the de Young Museum. What can I say , I'm into the classics. So I did this after finding out that my de Young ticket would also give me admission here, yes we had time to do both, and just finished up as they were closing.

“A Beautiful Location for a Beautiful Museum”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

The architecture is grand, the views are outstanding with views of downtown San Francisco in the distance and of the Golden Gate Bridge. Located on a high hill, this former cemetery is now a gold course that surronds the museum with greens and Monterey cypress trees. The permanent collection is wonderful. There are often special exhibits to be seen. After a visit you might want to walk the trails that follow the Pacific Ocean's edge.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

Fantastic! I almost felt cheated when i walked into the last room and found Monet, Manet, picasso, Van Gogh--why didn't I come here first?
