If using the ticket included with a visit to Philadelphia Museum of Art, this is a good deal. Otherwise I'd just walk through the garden. I thought the Rodin exhibit at North Carolina was better.

If you have never seen Rodin sculptures up close and personal this is the museum for you. The museum costs $10.00 for adults and offers complimentary audio which gives you background museum info and selected commentary on selected sculptures or casts. I liked it but liked the atmosphere of Rodins Paris house and garden better. But if you haven't been... More

Located between the magnificent Philadelphia Museum of Art and the fabulous Barnes Foundation on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, it's not surprising that the Rodin Museum is overshadowed by them. It's a small museum, easy to overlook as you pass by on the Parkway, but it contains one of the largest collections of Auguste Rodin's works outside of Paris. It was... More

The entrance fee is just a recommendation; I believe you can pay what you can afford. Great collection, very accessible. Don't miss this, but if time is tight the Barnes Collection and the main art museum would be my first priority, unless Rodin is your favourite.

My wife and I did not know about Rodin until we got there. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide who really opened us up to Rodin's life and gave us depth to his creations both inside and out. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

I fell in love with Rodin since I saw his masterpiece Burghers of Calais a few years ago. Since then I have been looking for his works in every museum I visit. I was actually surprised to see there was a museum dedicated for his works in Philadelphia. You can find all of his famous works see you. This includes... More

On my first visit to Philadelphia I was not aware that this place exists. It's a small exhibition but absolutely worth it. It's less overwhelming that a "real" museum because there are fewer pieces. This way you can enjoy and appreciate it so much more. It's a great place and even if you only know "The Thinker" by Rodin, it's... More
