Where else can you go and actually breathe on Rodin's Gates of Hell? The quality of the installation and the ability to see every molecule of Rodin's work up close is an experience available nowhere else in the world.

Stopping at the Rodin Museum was well worth the time. I only wish I had more time to explore it in much greater detail.

We visited the Rodin during a weekend in Philly. I loved the descriptions that went with the sculptures and the indoor part off the museum had a good atmosphere. Furthermore, I very much appreciated two things about admission: 1. Recommended prices - pay what you think is appropriate, or what you can afford; and 2. Whatever you do pay is... More

I sometimes just sit outside and stay in the courtyard to read. It can be very peaceful there. Not to mention the classic works of rodin you'll have the pleasure of sitting next to. I like the gate of hell the most.

Immaculately laid out on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, down from the (mother) Fine Art Museum. It encourages you to slow down, take in the setting (smell the roses (though we were there in December), admire the art and reflect on the genius. I was familiar with many of the pieces (since Rodin did multiple copies) but it is always nice... More

This was the 2nd time viewing the Rodin museum. Though there's no set admission fee, we gave $5 each, which was appreciated by staff. Even though we only had 45 minutes, it was enough time to enjoy the creative genius of Rodin. We were told that the museum would rotate the exhibits in Feb. 2107 so to keep that in... More

The Rodin Museum houses over 150 pieces of art from Auguste Rodin. It is the largest collection of his work outside of Paris. Jules Mastbaum acquired art treasures like The Thinker, The Gates of Hell, The Burghers of Calais, and my favorite The Hand of God. The other positive of visiting this world class art museum is that admission is... More

Stop thinking about it! Go see "The Thinker"on the Ben Franklin Parkway in an area loaded with museums. This museum is usually not crowded and you can take your time. I especially urge you to see the "Gates of Hell" at the entrance and of course Rodin's The Thinker
