Probably one of the smallest museums I have been too but definitely worth the visit--nicely designed to showcase a number of Rodin's work with helpful details by each piece to aid with your understanding. The staff was friendly, offered to answer any questions but did not impose themselves on the visitors. A 'full' visit will probably take an hour or... More

Small but amazing work . . . well worth the visit. Right next to Barnes and Franklin Institute. They have a very pretty outdoor garden.

The second largest collection of Rodin works; second only to the Rodin Museum in Paris. Some amazing art in a really gorgeous building. Just down the Ben Franklin parkway from the Philadelphia Museum. This is a definite for art lovers. Be sure to see it.

Since I have been to many museums with Rodin's work, this museum is limited to only Rodin's works and not much else.

It was nice seeing the statue Dobie Gillis would like to reflect upon but I'm not terribly into Rodin. I didn't see a single piece that would work in my living room. ;-) The Gates of Hell is truly worth studying but way too big for 'my' door frame.

The collection of Rodin masterpieces and the history it represents can be taken in at this stunning gem of a Museum in Philadelphia. Add a Parisian cafe next door and it may feel like a visit to Paris, sans the flight.

Very pretty works of art even though most are centered on pain and suffering, tortured souls kind of stuff. The fact that you enter through the 'Gates of Hell' pretty much sums up what's inside.

I met my now significant other here - and we had a magical time. Small museum but the important pieces are here - go and wander the gardens, then stroll down the Boulevard.
