What a fantastic museum to visit on a nice day, since half the museum is the garden.
The mansion now housing the museum was built in the early 1700's, and Rodin rented space there, using the building as his studio in the early 1900's. The French government bought the building and Rodin negotiated being able to stay there by donating many of his sculptures. As such, it's a very unique space, providing context not usually included when viewing an artist's work.
The garden is amazing to wander through on a nice day. Rodin placed his works throughout, and seeing them in an outdoor setting is fantastic. The works of art themselves are not to be missed, the level of detail in his sculptures show a masterful understanding of the human form.
There are so many fantastic museums in Paris, but this one is not to be missed.
