It is a relatively tiny museum but nice sculptures to take a quick look at. Cheap street parking nearby on side streets as museum on major road.

This one's a bit of a gem, right next door to the new Barnes Foundation and only a short walk from the Philly Museum of Art. If you're a Rodin fan, it's definitely worth a visit as there are few places in the US where...More

To experience the sculptures of Rodin is an awesome experience. The museum is dedicated to only Rodin which eliminates distractions. Posted information and staff are helpful and provide insight. Experiencing the Rodin is very powerful, very moving in its intimate, quiet, peaceful settings.

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 :)
