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.

It's a small museum and can easily be seen in under an hour. Certainly worthwhile and the grounds are pretty too.

The best of Rodin is in this little museum tucked into the Art district of Philadelphia. Overshadowed by both the PAM and Barnes, the Rodin nevertheless is even more worth a visit that these other two powerhouses. This is the best collection of the French sculptor's work in the world, including the pieces at his former residence in Paris. Don't... More

It's right next door to the Barnes and won't take long to visit. I wouldn't go here, but if you haven't seen a Rodin sculpture, this is a great place to spend time. Lovely. Do check out the Barnes prices before you go...but both should be seen.

Excellent and focused coverage of a true master of sculpture. Worth visiting if you are in the museum district of Philadelphia.

Not a huge museum, but you really get a chance to study the work. Take your time and explore the garden too.

Rodin's major works displayed in a peaceful setting. Two major statues are outdoors at the side of the building, the famous "Thinker" is outside front. The front door has "Gates of Hell," further explored inside the museum.

This is perhaps the best laid out museum I've ever been in--as befits sculpture, everything is laid out so that you can walk around it a view it from all perspectives. All of Rodin's most well known pieces and many not well known--the front entrance is the entire Gates of Hell, and the Burghers of Callais and the Thinker are... More

While I admire Rodin as the amazing artist that he is, I was not so impressed by the museum collection, except for a few pieces which are worth the visit. Buying the ticket at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and using it for both venues is a good way of seeing the Rodin Museum. In my opinion, the following sculptures... More

The museum is interesting and the entry is a almost compulsory donation. You can also just see the sculpture in the garden without entering the hall.
