While small the museum has some beautiful Sculptures. The staff is very friendly and informed about the pieces. Take your time to really look and study them. Especially the Gates of Hell piece.

The Rodin Museum only being a few minutes away from the Museum of Art was a nice little addition to my activities in Philadelphia, it also gave me the opportunity to see and learn some more about the artist than what I already knew (very little really), as yet having failed to make it to the Rodin Museum in Paris...

A great collection, representing every phase of Rodin’s career, is housed in this small beautiful building and the garden that surrounds it. It’s next to Barnes Museum. Visiting its garden is free while the admission for the building is “Pay what you wish” . There is a suggested admission ( 10$ for adults) though. In the main entrance of the... More

The entrance is "Pay what you wish" so it's accessible to all. Most of the pieces (all except 2) are original and the explanations help humanise the art and make it more approachable. It's a small museum but would totally go again and again! Definitively want to re visit and draw something in one of the public sketch books.

Museum is pay what you will. The benefactor collected Rodin's work and the Family donated the collection so it could be shared. A must see for an art lover or one wanted some exposure to sculpture. The museum provides a comprehensive collections of the artist's work, discusses the subjects, and his unique creative technique which challenged the convention at the... More

A small museum so best to pop in for 30 to 40 minutes combining it with the Barnes or another museum. Some of the more interesting sculptures are in the garden. The garden is beautiful and the building is attractive although a little spoilt by ugly tall buildings that are now behind it.

If you are doing the art museum thing. You can pair the Rodin Museum with a trip to the Philadelphia art museum they are very close to each other. Or perhaps do not have time for the really large Art museum. then the Rodin might just be perfect. It is relatively small. You can cover the entire museum in 1-2... More

A unique building that makes an impression from outside. Rodins works are great. The entrance of the museum is a masterpiece.

Not to be missed. A brilliant array of studies and final pieces, different subject matter and media. Great information. Wonderful and very small gift shop (but just right). Some pieces outdoors (there were different outside compared to my visit a few years back). Pay what you want with some very reasonable suggested admission prices.

Don't pass it by. This is the opportunity to see more of Rodin's works than anywhere outside of Paris. Beautifully exhibited and easily accessible, it is a little gem.
