Nice museum

I went to the one in Europe not as nice but very well put together. The statues are just so beautiful. It was nice to walk around in.

If you want a real Rodin Museum, you must go to Paris, but Paris is a bit far away. . . and this museum does offer as much of Rodin as you can see anywhere in the USA.

This museum was small and still held our attention for over an hour. There were some amazing works by Rodin, and the signage was informative and well done. Not the first place I'd go in Philly, but certainly work a visit if you have time.

I have lived in the Phila area all my life and this was my first visit to this small but wonderful museum. If you are a fan of Rodin's sculpture, the museum is a must see. Be sure to read all the descriptions of the works. There are interesting tidbits of information on each. The grounds are also beautiful and... More

Both the collection and the building in which it is housed are beautiful. Unmissable. Check out the detail on the facade.

We arrived too late to enter the museum, but were excited to see that there are pieces displayed outside. It was great to get a little glimpse of a Rodin masterpiece!

My 14 yr old daughter and I loved this museum. We used our Philadelphia Pass, but it's a pay what you wish museum so you you pay as little or as much as you want.

This museum is included as part of the Philadelphia Museum of Art admission. It is very manageable to go through in less than 2 hours. The sculpture is beautiful and the setting complementary. The commentary is not excessive but adds to the experience. Young children may find it difficult not to touch and run around.

Returned here for my first visit in 25 years. The museum is in a beautiful setting with many large shade trees. A quiet oasis in the city. Gates of Hell is an amazing sculpture and there are several others here, some that you can find in other galleries such as the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. The light inside... More

We love all the pieces in the museum and the great accompanying background information. The building and grounds are quite beautiful. I only wish there were more Rodin pieces to view.
