“Rodin Museum - A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

On my first visit to Philadelphia I was not aware that this place exists. It's a small exhibition but absolutely worth it. It's less overwhelming that a "real" museum because there are fewer pieces. This way you can enjoy and appreciate it so much more. It's a great place and even if you only know "The Thinker" by Rodin, it's a wonderful place for broadening that horizon.
There is also a little park area with water feature. Nice to hang out afterwards and sort your thoughts.

“excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

This air conditioned museum was a welcome respite on a hot July day. Thoroughly enjoyed learning about Rodin and discovering what made him a great artist: renditions of hands, biblical themes, and extreme emotional states of his subjects. Small and focused enough that it is not overwhelming, unlike some of the larger museums.

“A taste of Rodin in Philly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

We parked next to the Rodin museum before embarking on a walking tour of Philadelphia. The museum building is quite attractive from the outside and had a scenic garden with a few sculptures. Once inside, the building is also pleasing to the eye and contains a reasonable selection of Rodin's sculptures. Apparently it's the second largest collection of Rodin's works in the world after Paris. The Thinker, the Gates of Hell and the Kiss are all there but the latter is a copy and it's not always clear whether castings are original or later versions. Nevertheless worth the $8 suggested entrance fee which I was told also allows entry into the Museum of Art. Worth spending up to 1 hour to get a taste of Rodin.
