Nice small museum

Great collection of Rodin sculptures. It was great to be so close to the pieces. The gates of hell was amazing.

Rodin is a master of sculpture, I loved learning about his pieces and the inside thoughts associated with each piece... his relationship with each of the models provided a nice glimpse of him as the artist.

The Philadelphia Rodin Museum is touted as the best collection of Rodin works outside of the Rodin Museum in Paris. Beautiful grounds with opportunities to take pictures outside the museum for free of the most well know Rodin sculpture of all,The Thinker. The price of $10 per person is a bargain to get to learn some of the history of... More

This museum is quite small and may be easily overlooked, but it's well worth the visit. The museum itself and its surroundings are beautiful. Rodin sculptures inside and outside so don't miss out on any.

Okay it's not Paris but still very good. Very well housed and curated. Lovely building and setting. Magnificent garden and water. TIP - about 45 mins in museum and garden so get the joint ticket for the PMA and others. Take time in the garden. No cafe etc but a big Whole foods just behind with a cafe and takeaway... More

We enjoyed the artwork. We learned a little about Rodin and his subjects. There's an app you can download and learn even more in videos from your smartphone or they'll give you an iPad with the same app to borrow. It's a pay what you want type place so we decided $40 for 5 people was acceptable.

Not too large so can visit in an hour or less if you want. Stopped by on way to another visit to larger museum. Worth a visit.

Photo op. We watched a large wedding photo shoot there prior to our fun time. Moving and pensive. Easily accessible. No cost for a photo op with The Thinker. Admission was only $8 for me as a senior. Everyone should think strongly about seeing this one.

If you appreciate Rodin you have to visit this museum. One of the Thinker statues is in the outside courtyard. The Gates of Hell are displayed next to the entrance and The Burghers of Calais are in the main exhibition room. The amount of art here is second only to the collection in the Rodin Museum in Paris. The pieces... More
