Great museum tucked away at the beginning of the parkway to the museums. It is not large, but requires some time if you really want to absorb the stories and journey of the artist. There are several sculptures outside, but the descriptions on each piece give a lot of detail and you get the story of many of the pieces... More

A small museum of exquisite sculptures by Rodin. Perfect for a shorter visit: 1-2 hours if you want to take your time to study, but 30 minutes can be enough too. My favorite sculpture is the front door. When you enter the beautifully landscaped grounds through a grand gate, you are in another world. Kids like it too because the... More

A boutique size sculpture museum featuring a collection of Rodins including the Gates of Hell all interestingly described. Located on the Parkway between the wonderful and relatively new Barnes with it world class collection of Impressionist and Post Impressionist art and the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art. One can do an overview of all in a 3-5 hours or spend... More

Museum was small and manageable size. Statues on the interior as well as the interior. Also manageable was the amount of information about each statue, you learned things but it was not overwhelming.

The genius of Rodin is on full display in this museum. The grounds are lovely and have a few sculptures on display, including the very impressive Burghers of Calais and the Gates of Hell. Inside the museum, there are smaller sculptures and busts with helpful and interesting descriptions accompanying each. There are also books and sketch pads that we didn't... More

We had the best volunteer who guided us on our tour of the museum. We all learned about Rodin, how bronze statues are cast, and about the time period when these sculptures were composed.

This is very good museum but a fraction of the size of the Rodin Museum in Paris. It looks bigger from the outside. Even studying and reading everything it does not take more than an hour, which makes it ideal to fit in with either the nearby Barnes or the Museum of Art.

This is a cerebral experience as there is a philosophy behind some of the more arresting artwork. This can be accessed using the audio guide that is available at the front desk. Spend some time: reflect and admire.

This Museum has the largest amount of Rodin sculpture outside of France. I have loved Rodin's art since I was a teenager- the works are extraordinary, beautiful, powerful and moving. The Museum has lovely grounds with a fountain and outside sculptures as well. Many years ago, we had a French exchange student stay with us and the only things about... More

A nice collection of Rodin sculptures in a pleasant setting. Admission is included with purchase of Philadelphia Museum of Art tickets. If you like Rodin, this is a must see when in Philladelphia. The Philly Flash has a stop at this location. Closed on Tuesdays.
