Since the Philadelphia Museum of Arts was closed on the day we decided to visit the museum, we walked back the way we came and noticed the Rodin Museum was open. It is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. It is truly a tranquil museum with beautiful works of art...not to miss!

I thought Rodin could only be visited in Paris. To my surprise, Rodin should also be visited in Philadelphia. This is a very small museum (take about one hour to go round) but it is worth the visit. Some beautifull originals and several famous replicas are present. Do not forget the big statues in the garden as they are somewhat... More

This Museum contains a small selection of Rodin pieces. It is a beautiful museum from the outside with sculpture entering the museum grounds, on the Museum's facade and in the garden around the museum. All this can be seen without actually going into the museum itself.The admission is included in the ticket price for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The... More

My husband and I visited this museum on the hottest day on record in Philadelphia. It was a relief to enter the doors into the cool, well planned space and confront works of artistic genius. The gentleman that works there offered extensive knowledge on certain pieces and really impressed us. As a sculptor, I was inspired and awestruck by Rodin's... More

Smaller version of the Rodin Museum & gardens in Paris except no roses. The Gates of Hell most impressive. Good catalog of his work.

Located on a street influenced by the Champs Elysees this was a gift from the Mastbaum family. The French council and brother of Rodin's paramour, Camille Claudel, officiated at the dedication. Claudel was an accomplished sculpture in her own right and reportedly not treated very well by Rodin (see the movie). This museum is not quite as extensive as the... More

This is a separate building associated with the larger Philadelphia Museum of Art; can be accessed using same 2 day ticket. If you don't want to pay the entrance fee, be sure to at least see the sculptures outside which are freely accessed, including the doors showing Rodin's Gates of Hell. This is a small museum with gorgeous sculptures.

Our family of 6 (including 3 teens) visited this museum on 8/7/16. My hubby, older 20-something daughter and I really enjoyed the sculptures and statues. Our 3 teens didn't enjoy so much probably due to many of the figures were nude. Garden & reflecting pool were lovely. Small but nice & affordable gift shop. Would be nice to have more... More

I had an excellent one hour in the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia. It is not a large museum but it has some spectacular sculptures by Rodin including the Thinker and the Gates of Hell. I recommend this museum highly.
