This is a small museum that is very interesting. Did not know much about Rodin until we visited. Numerous sculptures both inside and outside in the gardens. Interesting stories with several of the displays. For the price well worth the visit. Several restaurants nearby along with the Barnes Museum.

Rodin's art is wonderful, and the building itself is also very beautifiul. It's interesting that Rodin's most famous works were found outside, and just walking around the building would be worth the trip over to the museum if you're in Philly. But pay a little extra and go inside to find some additional great pieces; it's actually a very small... More

If ever you're in the area and have time to do just one cultural thing, visit the Rodin Museum - you won't be sorry for it. It's a great collection of all things Rodin, and more.

Wonderful museum, small enough to enjoy in an hour. At first glance, it is just a collection of beautiful sculpture. But then I started reading explanations and history for each of the pieces. I found myself looking at the details. I began to search for what the French sculptor was trying to convey. I was drawn into the beauty of... More

A very nice, but small museum. The audio tour is very well done. Don't forget to look at the building itself, especially the ceiling in the main area.

This is a very good small museum, right in the centre, packed full of fantastic art works. It wasn't crowded and it felt like I had the place almost to myself. A good way to spend a couple of hours.

If using the ticket included with a visit to Philadelphia Museum of Art, this is a good deal. Otherwise I'd just walk through the garden. I thought the Rodin exhibit at North Carolina was better.

If you have never seen Rodin sculptures up close and personal this is the museum for you. The museum costs $10.00 for adults and offers complimentary audio which gives you background museum info and selected commentary on selected sculptures or casts. I liked it but liked the atmosphere of Rodins Paris house and garden better. But if you haven't been... More

Located between the magnificent Philadelphia Museum of Art and the fabulous Barnes Foundation on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, it's not surprising that the Rodin Museum is overshadowed by them. It's a small museum, easy to overlook as you pass by on the Parkway, but it contains one of the largest collections of Auguste Rodin's works outside of Paris. It was... More
