I have now seen Rodin's thinker in Paris and Philadelphia, was not expecting to see it in Louisville. Located on the U of Louisville campus, not far from the Speed Museum, well worth the few minutes it takes to walk there.

OK, parking nearby is virtually nonexistent(there is handicapped parking) so the best you can do is drive up to it and maybe stop for a few seconds. The other option is to park at the Speed Museum and walk over. Parking meters nearby? Well, good...More

Rodin's Thinker is a cool piece of art that is a must see when checking out the unique sights and sounds of The Derby City! Come see this contemplative carving - and bring your camera or phone!

A replica of Rodin's famous Thinker in front of the old main admin building at the University of Louisville. Handsome setting; formal entrance to the campus. Between downtown and the Churchill Downs race track, so it's on the way. Also near the Speed Museum, the...More

This is actually the centerpiece for the University of Louisville Belknap Campus. It sits directly in front of Grawemeyer Hall and is located in a very picturesque area of the campus. The statue itself, (a reproduction) is nice to look at but pails in comparison...More

Located in front of UofL's historic Admin building, stands one of the early copies of Rodin's famous Thinking Man. It is large and photogenic. A walking tour of UofL is a treat for architecture buffs. The university has been in existence since 1798. Conveniently located...More
