Relax in the gardens on a spring day

Although the sculptures in the museum are great to see, the larger statues in the garden area are not to be missed.

The gardens are undergoing some kind of reconstruction and I had told my friend they were the most beautiful in Paris. So disappointment here. Lots of reconstruction going on around Paris while we were there the week of Sept 20 thru 28th. If you are interested in the work, It is superior as always. Rodin is the best! So were... More

This was really interesting not only in the sculpture but also in the museum itself. It is a beautiful old mansion with wonderful grounds to walk through and look at sculpture. I would include this on my must see to experience the culture of the area as well as the art of Rodin

Rodin was a master. All his stuff is here in the house where he lived and worked. Nothing else to say.

. . . . then visit the Rodin Museum. The Thinker and other of his sculptures are in the outside gardens. The mansion houses many more of Rodin's works. Plan on a couple of hours.

The Rodin sculpture is a "don't miss" when visiting Paris. Walking thru the sculpture the feeling of pure serenity while marveling at the artistry of Rodin.

This is an amazing museum located in the mansion where Rodin eventually lived & worked. It is arranged chronologically by Rodin's various art periods, paintings & sculptures . Of course the gardens are beautiful and pleasant to stroll in and there's a nice cafe outside too to enjoy lunch. Extensive remodeling of the gardens is nearing completion but still what... More

This is a great museum, especially if you love sculpture. Rodin's work as well as some of his assistant's work, is displayed throughout the grounds and inside the museum. An audio guided tour is available but not absolutely necessary. The inside of the museum has been restored to the time of Rodin and the views and light through the windows... More

The newly refurbished Musee Rodin near Les Invalides is a peaceful and stimulating treat for those interested in sculptor Rodin. Famous for The Kiss , the Thinker etc but set in the gardens of his later home these works of art deserve some time. We went early and had the place without too many crowds.

Rodin was a genius. It was really something to see the same sculpture using different mediums to understand more about the art form. Although this is a smaller museum, I would put this as a must see on your itinerary.
