“Beautiful Garden Walk”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

On our recent trip to Paris, we visited the Musee Rodin and only toured the outdoor garden. It was an impressive walk, and only cost one Euro (very affordable for such a nice place!). We admired the famous "Thinker" statue, as well as many other beautiful Rodin sculptures. We also just sat on a bench in the park and relaxed. It was very nice, and less crowed than other Paris attractions we went to. We were glad that we included this stop on our holiday.

“Thinker & Gardens the Highlight”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I didn't know what to expect from Musee Rodin, so I was both pleasantly surprised and disappointed. The gardens and statues outside were beautiful and a highly enjoyable walk. The work inside was nice was well. Overall there wasn't a great deal to see though. Our visit took less than 1 hour. I wouldn't put it on my must-see list if you are only in Paris for a short while, and definitly skip it on a super hot day (we were there in 38 degree heat - too hot to be in the gardens without shade). Worth the time on a repeat visit or if you've already seen all the major sites.

“A gem of a museum”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

This museum made me mad that I couldn't travel back in time. To see where such a wonderful artist lived and worked when it was happening would have been amazing. A quiet gem that I would love to see again and again.

“just go to the garden/quick visit”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The gardens were simple and nice, visited The Thinker of course and the other few sculptures out there. Not a very busy museum, walked right in and bought the tickets. If you like Rodin you might like it, if not, its a hit or miss.
