This was my first visit to the Rodin Museum since they moved some of the sculpture outside. That greatly improves it--the inside is no longer overcrowded, and in particular the Burghers of Calais works much better in the open air than inside, where it oddly dominated the room; seen from the window inside the figures seem appropriately diminished, matching the depicted despair and misery.
It's a small museum, with a wonderful collection of Rodin's work, including the Gates of Hell. Entrance is included in the fee for the Philadelphia Museum of Art; visiting both makes sense.
