The only major Rodin collection outside of Paris. Serene, beautiful setting in a wonderful area of the city. A nice walk, even if you aren't an art lover.

A small intimate collection that is well worth it. Amazing one man was able to accumulate so much of his work and had the means to provide for its display.

This is a great museum with the works of French sculptor Auguste Rodin including over 140 bronzes, marbles, and plasters. The garden outside the Museum also displays a total of eight works especially amazing The Thinker and The Gates of Hell. You can visit the garden for free. The museum is always "pay as you wish". There is a guided... More

This is the largest collect of Rodin's work outside of Paris. It is beautifully displayed in a handsome, well lit building. Good descriptions at each piece. They also have headsets available with more information and I now wish we had taken advantage of them. There are also tours but not at a time that worked for us. We were there... More

Interesting and well run small museum dedicated primarily to the sculptural work of Rodin. We took the free trolley from the Philadelphia Museum of Art as our tickets for it also admit you to the Rodin Museum.

I'm not big into sculptures. But if you take the daily 1:30pm tour you will learn SO much about Rodin and the world of sculptures - you will truly feel your eyes have been opened to a whole new area you didn't care much for before. The guide we had was passionate and extremely knowledgeable and was able to give... More

Save the trip to Paris for another time. This is a lovely collection, both inside and out. It is across the street from the Barnes and offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in great art.

The Rodin Museum falls into that category of not too big and not too small, but just right! Beyond the information on the works in the museum, we benefitted from asking an arts student who works as an usher at the museum, various questions. Mark was more than happy to give us a personalized tour of about 15 minutes of... More

What a great little museum. We downloaded the app and were able to get info on each piece right from our phone - but bring head phones or you will get admonished by the staff. Rodin was a fascinating artist and there are so many interesting pieces that have a common theme to his life work - the Gates of... More
