This is a very nice museum. It was included in the Paris Museum Pass and definitely a must-see for Rodin fans. We were disappointed that The Thinker was under renovation in the garden and had scaffolding around it during our visit. The Gates of Hell was magnificent and interesting to compare it with the one in the Musee d'Orsay.

Make this your first museum visit in Paris! It is not huge, and can be enjoyed completely in a few hours at a relaxed pace. The main attraction is the garden, with Rodin's amazing bronzes integrated into the landscape where you can view and even touch them. Before the museum, I was only familiar with Rodin's most familiar "Thinker", but... More

Now that the renos are done, this is a great spot to see Rodin shine. So many great pieces, the museum shows well indoors and outdoors. And Rodin even owned a couple of van Goughs which are on display. Great left bank ToDo.

Rodin is the master and the museum it set up perfectly to digest his genius. The gardens on which many of his works are displayed are beautiful. Take your time and really move around the works. There is no rush and since the works are so spread out it is far less overwhelming than the Louvre. Take a couple of... More

Great part of our trip. Went shortly after they opened and wasn't busy. Definitely worth a visit. The gardens alone are worth it.

We were able to view the many statues in the glorious garden prior to entering the building. The atmosphere was lovely. The exhibits inside were equally impressive. We were very glad we saw this.

Went back recently. First visit was 18 years ago. Renovations since have greatly improved the visitor experience. Many large sculptures displayed in beautiful garden, while smaller sculptures & paintings displayed indoors. Best part was a casual and inexpensive salad or sandwich lunch in the garden cafe--a perfect to eat and stay cool on a hot summer day.

We loved the Rodin museum. All our life we have heard and seen pictures of the famous sculpture, The Thinker. To see it in real life along with the other sculptures of Rodin was really very interesting if you like that sort of thing. They also have a bust of the Thinker is a much larger size outside the museum.... More

First of all, we love Rodin's works. This museum is well worth a visit when you're in Paris. Just the right size for a couple of hours.

The outdoor component has many impressive statues, though their name plates tend to be far away (perhaps to avoid having readers in pictures of the sculptures). There's a cafe in the outdoor part as well, but it has a fairly limited selection. The indoor component is quite impressive, and I would urge visitors to watch the 2 videos near the... More
