A quiet, green space in the midst of the city. We only purchased admission to the Garden to see the sculptures including The Thinker and appreciated it thoroughly. Allow 1-2 hours to enjoy the gardens, it has toilettes and café within the garden setting. Gift shop was very busy and a bit small for the number of visitors otherwise would... More

I had high hopes for this museum but they were dashed right out of the gate when we were greeted by a security guard at the door demanding our ticket. As we explained; we didn't have a ticket and would like to purchase one, he was shocked, and kept saying "you have nothing??" No Dude, no ticket, no pass, nothing.... More

This is a must when visiting Paris. I had visited the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia years ago as a student but this one is far better. The metro stop is Varenne and the Musee is directly next to this stop. I attended the Robert Mapplethorpe/Rodin Art show first but spent a lot of time viewing the sculptures in the Gardin... More

We brought a picnic lunch with us to enjoy a beautiful afternoon in Rodin's sculpture garden. The museum includes a variety of Rodin's works in bronze, marble, and plaster. We were a little disappointed that there wasn't a wider selection on display (which is rotated), but we still had a wonderful time at the museum.

I'm biased because I love Rodin's work, but even for those who don't, I still think there's much to be enjoyed at this museum. Gardens intrigue me and just having the option to view art inside, then go outside and stroll is attractive. This is one of the less-stressful destinations because it's not super-crowded and there are places to sit... More

The Rodin Museum is in the house that he lived in. The house is beautiful. In the house you will find many large and small statues that he created. The grounds are very beautiful and his statues are situated in the gardens also. His works of art are great. He also has some other paintings in his house that were... More

The show was wonderful - the dancing, the roller skating act, comedians. However, my wife did not realize that women dance topless - do not bring the kids

The museum is housed where Rodin worked. Many of his pieces are displayed in the gardens around the building. This is a quiet and beautiful place. In the far back of the garden we also found some long lounge chairs and just rested our eyes for about 30 minutes. A refreshing time and place to be. And Rodin's work is... More
