Love the Rodin sculptures and the modern art room. I take my kids every once in a while. It is nice to get on the Stanford campus too.

“Rodin collection outstanding”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Free museum, wonderful building. The Rodin collection is one of the world's largest. On-site sandwich shop by Jesse Cool, an Alice Waters disciple - everything fresh & local. When you're there, ask for directions to the cactus gardens - it's not far away, and cacti have been growing there for 40 years.

“Sculpture garden is open 24/7”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

The best part of this museum is the Rodin sculpture garden outside, and accessible at all hours... inside there are neat pieces, but nothing unexpected from other world class museums.
