For a small museum the variety of sculpture is great. Anyone interested in Rodin's work will find a visit here well worth the time

This museum rivals the one in Paris. It's small but has all the reliefs from the Gates of Hell. The original Gates of Hell is on the front door. The museum and grounds were just renovated. Little known fact, is that this museum is included in your cost of admission to the larger Philadelphia Art Museum.

The Rodin Museum was a delight. It's larger on the inside than it seems from the street. For anyone who appreciates sculpture, this is a must.

The Rodin Museum is well worth the time for a visit - The outdoor garden is lovely, and the collection is amazing to see. Located right next to the newly opened Barnes - and right down the Parkway from the Philadelphia Art Museum, the Rodin Museum is a "MUST" for anyone spending the weekend in Philadelphia!

Intimate museum with an impressive collection of the works of the master sculptor. The newly renovated museum is a jewel of Neoclassical design.
