For the most unexpected and captivating oasis of calm in the centre of Paris, please go to this museum and then spend most of your time in the garden. Indoors the exhibits are wonderful. They provide a near unique insight into how sculptors scale up their works to become the most majestic features in the public realm.

I have always loved Rodin and the power of his works. The gardens were a nice place to stroll and just enjoy. As the renovation was supposed to have been done by 2015 it was disappointing that the "hotel" has not open.

Me and my boyfriend recently attended this museum in finding out that the museum was free as we are EU citizens and aged between 18-26. It was interesting to see The Thinker, and as we only had the free admission, this only permitted us to see the permanent collections and the gardens. The weather was a little grey so although...

Only the gardens are open at the Rodin Museum in Paris while the building undergoes a renovation. Still, the gardens capture the gist of Auguste Rodin’s greatest work—his slightly larger than life bronze sculptures of the Burghers of Calais, Balzac, the Gates of Hell. He wasn’t the first to shun sculpting heroic decorative monuments, or to master the anatomy. His... More

The main museum in the Hotel Biron is closed for renovations. Too bad! But you can wonder the gardens & see quite a number of Rodin's famous sculptures. Not knowing much about his work, though, I didn't appreciate the place the way someone else might have.

the ability to traverse a sculpture gallery and beautiful grounds makes this museum the ideal visit on a Paris afternoon.

The house is currently being renovated so only the grounds were open. No crowds (unheard of in Paris) made our visit delightful. The sculptures were scattered throughout the compound with the Paris skyline as a backdrop. A wonderful way to enjoy Rodin's sculptures.

Make sure you stop by. It is cheap. 1 or 2 euro depending on your age/student. Unfortunately it was under reform when we went. Still beautiful and must see.
