Lovely museum grounds. We walked around the outside, where there are several of Rodin's more well-known sculptures. A lovely setting. We did not go inside so cannot comment on the inside and whether or not there is a fee. Definitely worth the walk around the grounds, takes only 30 minutes at most.

The sculptures are amazing & the bronzes wonderful, but taking a tour with one of the wonderful staff truly makes Rodin's works come alive. The doors defy description, and the story behind them is well worth the tour!

The Rodin Museum is wonderful in its simplicity. The building itself is elegant. The limited number of pieces shown are well spaced allowing for comfortable movement inside the rooms and around the pieces.

The Rodin Museum is a present to the City of Philadelphia from an early movie theater magnate who happened to be an avid collector of Rodin sculpture. It is an excellent Rodin museum and a very good museum overall. The museum is probably worth about an hour of your time. On a nice day, start in the nice garden area... More

These are some of the most marvelous pieces in European art. They include the delicate, detailed pieces depicting Dante's Inferno, and other classics. Small enough to see in one visit. A gem of a museum.

Not really much to say about this place, It's just boring. The sculptors are good but there's a lot of non-sense littered about this place too.

This is a nice collection of sculptures made by Rodin. However, I did find the display a bit boring and would suggest that given the mainly dark single color items, more colour would be added to the surrounding to make the overall look less gloomy.
