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.

Tucked on a side street really, we dined at a wonderful cafe prior to coming to this Rodin. It is a small Musee, yet wonderful! The garden is lovely to stroll around and take in the Parisian lifestyle. The magnitude of his sculptures from large to small was amazing!

This one is a real treat both inside and out. The parklands and gardens are filled with statues and the museum is packed with items of interest. I only stopped in to use the bathroom and ended up staying here for an hour, and then brought the rest of my group back later. Go on a sunny day to see the gardens and fountain at their best.

A perfect small museum full of major art. We enjoyed the gardens so much we went back twice in the same week. We listened to the audio tour which gave us the breath and depth of Auguste Rodin. This is a must do in Paris.

Came to see the thinker and found much more. The grounds were beautiful and the statues impressive. Make sure to go upstairs in the house, as there were other artworks. I loved the Van Gogh. You can spend a day here or make a quick trip. Worth the stop.
