I Think you Found great sculpture.

Secret revealed. Rodin did several "Thinkers." One stands here among much of Rodin's work. It is a small museum close to the Barnes. Enjoy them both on the same day.

Rodin Museum is a small two room museum with a garden around it. The pieces found there are quite impressive but what made my visit better is the free guided tour explaining the history and the story behind most of the sculptures. A must see!

Nice for what it is ... but it's small and only representative of the Rodin collection. However, if you can't go to Paris (or Stanford University) this is a good museum to appreciate Rodin.

The place to better learn the what and why and how Rodin created. Do this museum with a good guide. Close enough to center city to walk and enjoy the streetscape of Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

This museum is only two rooms, but has lots to see. Love the outside garden area, also. Very reasonable "suggested" admission.

So I have been to the one in Paris, You will get a similar feel. If you haven't seen a Rodin museum, you should go. It's a piece of Europe and history at easy access in Philly. Quite something.

Medium sized presentation of Rodin"s best. Exciting presentation in an ideal house for a museum. Small enough to dramatize the beautiful sculpture

Small and intimate museum housing many of the creations of Auguste Rodin including the Thinker. The Gates of Hell, a centerpiece of the museum, is a "thinker's" delight as one ponders all the images incorporated into the panels and what story is hidden within them.
