Traveling with our dog, so unable to visit the museum, but the Thinker outside was impressive. Lots of sculptures on Ben Franklin Highway in the museum district.

The Rodin Museum exhibits Rodin's sculpture in a cozy environment inside and outside which shows the pieces in bright light and open spaces. Excellent displays, informative materials, friendly staff. A nice quiet and serene venue within a bustling city.

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 :)
