This is a gorgeous little museum with a beautiful garden, strewn with sculptures and little hideouts, you can sit there for hours after your visit and be inspired. There is a temporary exhibition added every few months and it was a great surprise addition (photographer Maplethorp) This museum is especially good for those who are overwhelmed by the big, daunting...

The Rodin Museum is a hidden gem in the heart of Paris...a garden filled with his original bronze sculptures of massive impact and proportions. like THE THINKER..His GATES OF HELL based one Dante's Inferno are incredible....his home is filled with the delicate, fine marble sculptures that are so opposite in composition from the powerful outdoor pieces...

Booked tickets online and skipped the line. Great as it was hot. The photography of Mapplethorpe worked very well with Rodin's sculptures. Fascinating sculptures throughout, great curator. An absolute must visit when in Paris. The gardens are beautiful spent 4 hours there.

Garden is well worth the price. Many pieces are fun to photograph, and you can even get a good shot of 'Le Penseur' with the ET in the background!

The Musee Rodin is in a beautiful building surrounded by gardens with many of Rodin's work. There is great history to the building and how the museum came about. If you are interested in this artist or sculptures in general well worth a visit.

This museum was harder to get to but interesting. It's not that big. It is close to the Napoleon Tomb however so you can do them both at the same time.

I actually wanted to see some Camille Claudelle, which I did. Also, a special exhibit by Maplethorpe was being shown. He was influenced heavily by Rodin. An added bonus by an already wonderfull museum.

It's hard to beat the sculpture gardens and the lovely layout inside the main exhibit hall. Although the works are almost exclusively Rodin there are a couple of beautiful Van Gogh paintings lurking upstairs. The museum could add a little more information about the sculptures and Rodins life.

Seeing Rodin's statues outdoors in a beautiful garden is how they were meant to be seen. His vision is more apparent and the statues are more meaningful than when seen in a museum.
