This is a place that I suggest you visit and the free part is really enough..as far as I am concerned..They have a lovely fountain and there are several statue outside that you should see that you don't have to pay for..

The Rodin Museum is small but full of fabulous sculptures. It was a very educational experience. It is easy to combine a visit to this museum with a tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art as they are not too far apart. There is a shuttle, but it is really not a far walk.

If you´ve been to the original Rodin in Paris, you won´t be dissappointed with this one. It is a lot smaller, but it has some impressive works by the master. If you by a ticket for the Philadelphia M. of Art, you get a free entrance to the Rodin. Going to both museums in one day is easy!

Ok - it was fine since we got to go in there for free with the purchase of the $20 adult ticket to the PA museum, otherwise paying $8 for this museum alone would have been overkill. You get to see some great sculptures but unless you are a diehard fan you are in and out of this place in... More

This is a quiet museum on the Ben Franklin Parkway one stop from the Philadelphia Museum of Fine Arts. You can walk around the outside grounds with the many sculptures for free or enter the museum for a modest donation. The most famous sculpture are "The Thinker" and "The Gates of Hell".

My friends and I visited the Rodin Museum after a short walk there from the Barnes Foundation. The setting is particularly appealing and the museum itself is small enough (basically one large room with offshoots) that it provides a great break between the much larger Barnes and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. There is a suggested entry fee; however, surely... More

Philadelphia is a nice town that offers a lot of unique opportunities to enjoy art. It's also very clean and safe, and great for walking around and exploring. The Rodin Museum is a great stop on a long walk, since it is small, but offers an impressive collection of Rodin's work. The building is also very ell designed and the... More

I took my daughter here. I've been to the Rodin Museum in Paris and this is like a mini-version. I thought they had a great collection that included "The Thinker" and "Gates of Hell". It is a small museum but a really nice collection of his work here in the US. I have an appreciation for Rodin's work and this... More

The Philadelphia Rodin Museum is very well done. Smallish, but filled with great sculpture. The audio tour is excellent. Very worthwhile, and convenient to either the Barnes or the Philadelphia Art Museum. Takes about an hour. Modest fee.

My wife and I visited this museum on Oct 9, 2014. It is a small, intimate museum with many authentic sculptures from Rodin bought by movie theater magnate (Nickelodeon) Jules Mastbaum. This museum has the largest collection of Rodin's works outside of Paris, which I have also visited. The Gates of Hell, huge bronze 3D door, by the entrance was... More
