I've always enjoyed Rodin sculptures and this museum is perfect for an hour visit among his work.

There is simply not much to see. The building is pretty and the idea is interesting but again there isn't much to this attraction. You can be in and out of it within 15 minutes. I appreciate and understand art. I am a classically trained artist from a top ranked art college.

Rodin seems like a tortured soul. His art is very powerful. I enjoyed it very much.

I've been to the Rodin house and museum in Paris. This isn't quite that, but it is a great collection in an intriguing setting.

This is a beautiful museum, with some amazing Rodin works. (Closed at the moment for renovation - reopening in July 2012.)
