“Worth visiting even with indoor collection closed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

Rodin is not for everyone. The collection of his sketches suggest evolution over several decades around a vicarious theme of young women displaying their intimate regions. His sculpture demonstrates more masculine themes and the gardens and cafe are very nice even in Winter. The surrounding skyline including Invalides is a highlight. You can bring a picnic in the Summer - that would be worthwhile.

“A very popular museum with really good collection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Even if you are not Rodin's expert - this museum worth to be visited. It has a beautiful garden with a fee admission of only 1 euro! All the famous sculptures are here, in this park and you don't need to go inside. The souvenir shop has very good assortment of gifts.

“A beautifi; haven in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

This is one of my favourite museums in Paris. To see the beauty of Rodins work in his garden in fabulous and it is a lovely shaded quiet place to relax for a while. When you are there is is hard to beleive you are in the centre of Paris.
