This is my favorite "go to" museum in Paris. We have been twice now and will probably always come back. The museum and grounds have all of the classic Rodin pieces that you see in the books or classes and both times they had a different "special" exhibit. I love coming here because it is not overwhelming, it is surprisingly... More

The grounds and the museum have been under renovation for a long time and we have to admit, we were sorry that is STILL was when we were there in June. It's just not the same obviously walking past staffolding and barricades. Yet, the art is fantastic and a must see and absorb. Close to metro so easy to reach... More

The Gates of Hell bronze cast in the garden is to me the probably the most impressive work. Nice to come to if you are in the area. We stayed only a short time and that was enough to see everything.

Rodin's sculptures, in this setting, will leave you awestruck. There are also pieces by his very talented mistress, Camille Claudel worth checking out, who did not get her due in life. As the Rodin is very near L'hôtel des Invalides where Napoleon's Tomb is, both can easily be visited on the same day.

I enjoy this museum and the surrounding garden. The grounds are wonderful for a stroll. The museum inside is enjoyable, but to me, are an added bonus. Rodin is best viewed in nature, outside. Most of his greatest pieces are displayed by walkways and in alcoves, including 'The Gates'. The cafe is nice for a quick pick me up.

The museum is in restauration but there is a wonderful garden, in which the statues are placed. The queue seems long at first but it rapidly moves ahead.

Disappointing that the old house is not available as it is being renovated. But the works of Rodin are well displayed including in the garden, make sure you take a stroll right around the garden to see his major works including the Gates of Hell around at the side.

On a dark, dreary, rainy day we visited Musee Rodin. The grounds were muddy, and there was a fair sized crowd. Inclement weather be damned. The Musee Rodin is exquisite - even in dank weather the grounds are lovely. Simply go and soak up the totality of the talent that stands, sits, lay before you. The only odd thing was... More

Possibly the best museum experience we had in Paris! The line was manageable, the number of people in the gardens were reasonable and I'm not sure why, but it only cost 1 Euro per person! Of course the Rodin sculptures were fantastic, the gardens were beautiful/peaceful and quiet....we brought croissants/cheese and ate them on a bench and just absorbed the... More
