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.

You might need to know Rodin to visit this museum, the Thinker sculture is the masterpiece of the outdoor museum.

I spent so much time just looking at the beautifully restored ceilings, walls, floors. Of course the collection of Rodin's works is supurb, and now shown to best advantage in the newly restored Museum. The grounds are lovely and one can easily spend a few hours here, although if you only have an hour, you can still see just about... More

The statues are fantastic. Be sure to take time to walk thru the entire garden. That's where most of the well known statues are. It is a photographers dream.

Well worth the visit if you are in Paris. I t was great to see "The Thinker" and "The Kiss" , two of many sculptures by Rodin. The gardens are lovely with a very nice café. The actual Museum was originally a private mansion and the rooms are just beautiful. There have been many residents throughout the years. Rodin moved... More

We had previously visited this Museum in 2012. Since then the Museum has had work done, and it really has improved the whole experience. The exhibition of Rodin's works was really well displayed and very interesting. The gardens are also beautiful to wander and relax in. We had a very nice light lunch at the Cafe also, which offers a... More
