This is a spectacular, bite-sized museum with an amazing collection of world class sculpture, including the famous Gates of Hell. Don’t miss this. You can do it justice in a very memorable 2 hours

We had a Go Philadelphia pass. Glad this was included and we did not pay extra for admission. The art is great, but it's very small for the admission price.

Fantastic sculptures! I donated $10 for entry. PS - tip: there is a Wawa a block away. Get a meal there and bring it done to the water garden for a pleasant relaxing meal.

Honestly an hour is probably enough, but personally, sitting on the steps outside and just relaxing as it is a beautiful setting, might tack on some additional time :)
