A small museum in Philadelphia's museum area. I wouldn't go out of my way for it unless you're a big Rodin fan.

I'm glad we visited the Rodin Museum. The grounds are small, but lovely, as is the collection on display. I found the various portrait busts fascinating, particularly the portrait of Father Eymard. However, one visit to the museum was enough. For me, the most impressive aspect of the Rodin Museum is the lesson in philanthropy provided by the museum's creator,... More

We visited the Rodin Musuem while in Philadelphia for my daughter's wedding. It is a small and intimate museum set in a beautiful, park-like garden. The text accompanying each piece is very informative and gives an insight in to the artist. The Gates of Hell at the entrance are amazing and deserve several minutes of study. A fun place to...

We visit Philadelphia regularly, about 10-12 times a year and generally check out the historic sites and the art museums and other sites of interest. Somehow in all our visits to the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Barnes Museum, we have never fit in a visit to the Rodin Museum, which is literally just down or across the street. On... More

A small and to the point gallery of many of his most famous works. There are sketch books so you can even do your own drawing.

I visited here a few years ago and It was lovely. Great place for pictures, reflection and to admire art. I highly recommend a trip during a Paris visit.

I am a Rodin fan, so I enjoyed it. it is a donation to go inside, suggested is 10$ a piece, but you can pay whatever. keep the receipt so if you go to the art museum (I believe, maybe it was Barnes) , they subtract that donation for a daily ticket. You can walk the grounds for free. they... More

The only way you can see more sculptures by Rodin is to go to Paris. This museum is a must for all art lovers and so close to the Philadelphia Museum on Art, its annex, and the Barnes. The museum displays a complete history of Western art, is known also for its Impressionist collection and modern art collections, but shows... More

The gates, fountain and court are eerie if you you are a student of history. just beautiful. Its really quiet even if there is a busy road nearby.
