I've seen Rodin sculpture all over the world. Been to the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia. But there is something special about going to an artist's home. To see where they lived, thought and entertained. The gardens are lovely. The museum with many unfinished works, models, casts, etc. is another education into his world. Also it is a great neighborhood in... More

The Rodin Museum is one of the more accessible museums in Paris. The sculptures are distributed throughout a garden that tends to be less crowded than other venues. The restaurant is on the edge of the garden and is quite good and reasonably priced. One tends to be overwhelmed by the Louvre and the Orsay museums but we quite enjoyed... More

When we checked out this museum through the Paris Trip Advisor app on our smart phones, it was rated very high. We weren't too sure why but when we got there, we understood why. I would suggest to put it high on your list of "to visit" museums of Paris too. It is unique in that there is an indoor... More

The garden was pretty cool with all its statues including The Thinker. I docked a start because they have a concrete toilet as part of their display. Someone made a toilet out of concrete and it now sits in a Parisian museum.

Gardens well laid out with a number of sculptures. Be warned - there are two Rodin Museums. The one in the centre of Paris has the Thinker and the Burghers of Calais. The other has the Thinker on Rodin's grave and the Walking Man. The maps your receive have both on them. Don't do as we did and walk the... More

The museum is located in a beautiful old mansion surrounded with manicured gardens filled with Rodin's work including the famous "The Thinker" and "The Gates of Hell". This is my number two favorite place in Paris after the museum d'Orsay

Rodin was one of the most famous sculptors of any time and his works and home are on display in this park like setting. Go in the spring or summer as the landscaping is beautiful.

The Musee is under renovation, but that did not detract from the visit. The gardens are wonderful to stroll around and the building itself is beautiful to explore. You learn a lot about Rodin's other works as well the Thinker and the Kiss.

Seeing these works first-hand is a real thrill. Spend time in the gardens and get a bite to eat. One could spend an afternoon here if you're a Rodin lover. I would love to have access to seeing the sketches and the other smaller works that led to his masterpieces.
