The whole building itself is worth the visit, with his large dome made of steel and glass structures built for the 1900 world exhibition. We went to see the Rodin 100th anniversary exhibition and the Gardens exhibitions. The Rodin exhibition was well displayed, showing some major sculptures of the artist and a good overview of his works as well as his influence on contemporary art. The Jardins exhibition showed gardens through the history of arts, including a variety of media ranging from a press book by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, to English paintings and modern photographs. A stop at the cafeteria provided an opportunity for an affordable lunch in a relaxed atmosphere.

This is review of the exposition of Rodin. Is good but is better the one in the Rodin museum . The best thing of this exposition is the explanation of the way this great artist, organiser, and understanding of the market to be able not only to sell his enormous works to the Estate ! Being able to do smaller pieces of art that the rich people could buy. The other thing was to sell trough the galleries .

Gardens are a great part of my life and I have never experienced an exhibition that focused so totally on this subject. In this splendid Grand Space, we saw early studies of earth, documentation of plants, and ideas of how to organize various plant materials in exquisite outdoor tapestries . Famous paintings are interspersed with the tools and models of devices developed to plant and maintain the vegetation (from small plants to large trees--ever wonder how they trimmed them?). There are garden plans, painted views of famous gardens, portraits (by the likes of Cezanne) of gardeners, and photos of Atget showing an abandoned garden. A photographic self-portrait by Monet in his own garden, mounted flowers by ancient pilgrims to Jerusalem and also also by Paul Kee, extraordinary etchings and watercolors of flowers by Albrecht Durer and others, and glass flowers from Harvard's Peabody Museum--there are so many things to see. I cannot fail to mention two cases of jewels made into flowers--one case by Cartier and the other by Van Clef and Arpels--just unbelievably beautiful not to be missed!l The show is not short but worth the time, and happily filled with families and young viewers.

We got off of the bus to be able to visit the Palais. However, we couldn’t get in because the of tour visit hours. That was a disappointment. Make sure you don’t do the same mistake. This attraction is included in the Paris pass.

Paris is full of museums worth visiting and this is one of them. We enjoyed the exhibition on Rodin - it was much larger than what I anticipated. The exhibition on "Jardins" was not my favourite, although there were a couple of interesting pieces of art there as well.
