In visiting the museum Rodin just a few days after it reopened, the visit proved well worth the many months it was closed ! The Rodin pieces are shown at their best advantage, and the house where rodin passed his last years is now in a jewel state ! The only negative aspect is that there is so much to... More

The museum is set in the home of Rodin. It is a beautiful structure with wonderful gardens surrounding it. Inside are many of his most famous works, plus a large collection of his plaster castings, studies for larger pieces and some of his paintings. There is, also on the second floor a room with several stunning Van Gogh's a Renoir... More

This is one of my favorite small museums. Easy to see in an hour or maybe two, with some very fine work I had never seen before. Plus some art by other people, friends and lovers of Rodin's. Make sure you see the house where he worked and the garden as well. Some of the finest pieces are out-of-doors.

Beautiful Museum. If you love sculpture that is surely one of the places to go in Paris. Between the museum and the gardens you will have a marvelous half-day. Of course you can stay longer and profit of nice luncjph or tea at the gardens cafeteria.

This was Rodin's studio where he created and exhibited his works. It is absolutely gorgeous and doesn't feel overcrowded. The sheer scale, variety of mediums, and the number of Rodin's works is mind boggling. He was a prolific genius, and this is a temple dedicated to him. Get a museum pass to skip the lines.

A well laid out and informative Museum. Rodin is not my favourite artist but the displays showed the strengths and weaknesses of his work. My favourite pieces were the uncast clay heads that were elaborate and expressive. recommend a visit

Been itching to revisit following its recent refurbishment and we were not disappointed. Floors, ceilings and much else have been refurbished in keeping with the original design. The refurbished space is well lit and the many Rodin sculptures are intelligently displayed. As an added bonus there is also a small collection of art by other French artists that Rodin acquired...

You come away totally inspired but if an artist yourself, totally humiliated as you will never be able to create anything as beautiful.

We have visited the Musee Rodin a number of times. It was definitely getting somewhat shabby The refurbishment has been well done. Rodin's work is astonishingly well crafted. The display's are good. However, after all the time and money it took to renovate the museum, we were somewhat surprised at the lack of innovation. If you have never been there,... More

Mecca for Rodin fans and art lovers, you must plan and spend an entire day for Musee Rodin. Starting from The Thinker and the Gateway to Hell this place is filled with most of the unforgettable art creations of the great artist Rodin. The museum is hosted in the erstwhile hotel where Rodin spent a major part of his life.... More
