Weather was perfect (24C) to visit this museum where many of the works are in the gardens. An excellent backdrop for the sculpture and, despite being very popular, it didn't lose the serenity of the place. Really worth the trip out.

We only had time to explore the garden, but what a find! The tarif was only 2€ for the garden. Totaly valuable. We spend lots of time in the beautiful and romantic garden. Lots of flowers, a bassin and the fantastic sculptures spread all over. Next time we would definately visit the rest of the museum too.

I love Rodin's sculpture so Of course I loved this art museum. I saw it about 10 years ago but it was at the top of my list to revisit on this trip to Paris. And this is the house in which the artist lived. The larger bronzes are displayed in beautiful garden settings behind the house. The entire property... More

I love the collection of Rodin sculptures here. The highlight being the gates of Hell, in the garden. Try to go when the weather is good because many of the sculptures are on the outside and the park-like gardens are superbly maintained. Suggest start with Musee Rodin in the morning; The café/restaurant outside is helpful, recommend having lunch here and... More

It's part garden and part museum. When I visited it was quiet and not crawling with people. The museum is housed in a historic mansion which is a work of art in itself. The view from the garden back to the house is breathtaking. We enjoyed a nice rest with a glass of wine in the outdoor cafe. Yeah!

I was dragged along to this by a friend. It was a pretty steep entrance price for the quantity of objects on display, with the gardens taking up the bulk of our time as there was so little to do elsewhere. Recommended if you like to immerse yourself in French philosophy and art, however.

TheMusee Rodin is one of the best small museums in Paris. Devoted to Rodin's work, both the house and the gardens are beautiful, filled with his iconic sculptures.

The Louvre and Orsee get all the attention; this is one you shouldn't miss. Calm, quiet, less crowded than its more famous relatives, the Rodin Museum is such an enjoyable way to spend a few hours that it warrants becoming a calendar event during your visit.

A lovely museum and place to learn about the artist and sculptor. I didn't know the gardens were so beautiful. It's like mini-versail.

i really enjoyed seeing the development of the sculptures inside and then enjoying the larger pieces in the gardens outside. Lovely. Remember free of the first Sunday of the month and in the afternoon there was no line at all.
