What a beautiful peaceful place in the heart of Paris, near the eiffel tower. The "penseur" was unfortunately being pampered, refreshing shower. The building is magic, the pieces of art heartbreaking. Sometimes you get the feeling the sculptures will come to life around the corner. Walk in the parc was relaxing.

With so many museums and galleries in Paris, we decided to skip the Rodin museum and just pay for entry to the Sculpture Garden. We bought an audio guide and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and beauty of the gardens and sculptures and the information provided through the audio guide. If you are time limited yet still want to see Rodin's... More

Nice quiet gardens with lots of statues. Would give 5 stars but unfortunately when we were there Le Penseur (The Thinker) was covered up as it was being cleaned and restored. Would have been nice if they mentioned this when we paid for entry as it was the main purpose of us deciding to go here. In any case the... More

Certainly a highlight for us, like vex the sculptures, paintings and gardens. Loved the history of the lost art of casting. This is easier to maneuver through than most. Gardens are beautiful

Anyone with an interest in sculpture would love this museum. Great explanations of the creative process and the lost wax method of casting bronze. Rodin donated the home and gardens and many of the works thus creating his own museum. There are also paintings from his collection by Monet and Van Gogh. The room about Camille Claudel, his protegee, is... More

With so much to see in Paris Musee Rodin doesn't really take a priority but yes if you are staying in the city for a while it's worth a visit.

Over 18 individual galleries taking you through the timeline and trajectory of Rodin's personal and artistic career, elements well intertwined. Themes from Dante's Divine Comedy run throughout Rodin's works, therefore I suggest a brief review (think Cliff Notes) of the stories and characters to better appreciate these remarkable works and what inspired them. Definitely buy the additional tickets for the... More

In the interest of time and budget, we decided to only visit the gardens of the Musee Rodin and it was definitely worth the price of the ticket. You get your share of Rodin sculpture and the gardens are beautiful and peaceful, with benches and a nice café to spend as much time as you want there.

Smaller, compared to Louvre and Orsay, but beautiful, intimate, and charming. Wonderful garden with his sculptures. His works are arranged in separate rooms, so you can enjoy and avoid the crowd. Worth it.
