A lot of the statues had great descriptions. But some didn't - would have liked that. Very unique outdoor statue museum with some very moving statue sets, particularly the French martyrs.

Came to experience the garden which is cheap to get into. Got to see The Thinker and that was pretty great.

Even if you just see Rodin's masterpiece "The Thinker," it's worth visiting. But there's also so much more to see, and not just of Rodin's work. Plus, the property itself is exquisite, as is the outdoor collection of statues and sculptures sitting in the beautiful garden. The entrance on the street doesn't seem like much, but once inside, it's incredible.

the garden is so pretty, the mansion itself is manageable and the arts and statues are stunning. the birds will eat your lunch in the garden which is the most fun park and then you can relax on a lounge in the very rear of the grounds. It is a definite must-see destination, you have to love it.

Worth an hour for the non art fans and more for art fanatics. Loved seeing the Thinker and taking pics in the gardens. Print out information about the works before you go to appreciate them more. A small museum.

Musee Rodin is not a large museum but is packed full of interest for anyone with even the least interest in Rodin's life and work. Many of Rodin's masterpieces are displayed in a way that helps the viewer understand every aspect of his art, beginning, of course, with The Thinker as you enter the grounds. This is truly one of...

Auguste Rodin was a sculptor who lived in and converted the Hotel Biron, which is now a museum to his works. The most famous of which, The Thinker, is in the lovely gardens around the hotel. We wandered around and took in his other famous sculptures, including The Gates of Hell, Orpheus and The Burghers of Calais. Then head in... More

My husband is a wood sculptor, and the Musee Rodin was therefore a 'must-see' for us. The museum contains a large number of sculptures both indoors and out in the gardens, and does not disappoint. It was good to see Rodin's paintings as well as sculptures, and to see displays of unfinished works that demonstrated the processes involved in developing... More

Hands down. For a delightful afternoon, there's absolutely nothing that beats the Rodin museum. Don't let the current renovation (til Sept '15) stop you: the garden is still open, where most of Rodin's masterpieces are displayed in a way that enables you to explore every aspect of each piece. The temporary exhibit is very informative and fascinating, helping visitors understand... More
