The Ben Franklin Parkway has been called the Paris of Philadelphia, in part because the same person designed the Champs Elysee in Paris as our Parkway. Another feature in common both in Philly and Paris is that each has a Rodin Museum. While the museum in Paris is larger with more extensive grounds and special exhibits, our own Rodin Museum on the Parkway is a beautiful showcase for the masterpieces of Auguste Rodin. As a native Philadelphian, I have passed by his statue of the Thinker on the Parkway many thousands of times, so it feels like home to me to be intimately acquainted with that masterpiece. Another Philadelphia cultural treasure!
