If you know the Thinker then you know who Rodin is. The museum has one of the first large scale casts of the piece. The other major pieces are secondary works originating from the work "The Gates of Hell" inspired by Dante's "The Divine Comedy." A cast of The Gates of Hell also exists within the garden area of the... More

Beautiful gardens showcase the huge sculptures. "The thinker" was there in all its glory. I liked the idea of the excerpts taken from Rodin's memoirs that were attached to the trees. Gave me a good sense of the man.

I like this museum for the outdoor spaces. The outdoor spaces are beautiful and after walking all over the city, this is a great place to relax outside on the Lounge chairs near the fountain. Beautifully maintained. Had been to Paris several times before discovering this hidden gem. Love it.

Housed in a former chateau, the sculptures are nicely displayed without overwhelming. The gardens even in early spring add to the experience. It is an island of calm and contemplation in busy Paris. Appropriate place to view the Thinker.

I really enjoyed this hotel. The inside is decorated nicely and very welcoming. We got there at 1000 but check is wasn't until 1500 so they held our bags for us. The room was small but typical by European standards, I have stayed in smaller rooms before. The bathroom was actually quite large with a large tub and shower. Apparently... More

Go to Musee d'Orsay first and buy a joint ticket. Enjoy lunch or afternoon tea on the short walk between the two and then prepare to be entranced by the sculptures, the gardens, the chateau and the magnificent collection within. Not to be missed.

It is a lovely smaller museum you can take your time in reveling in the works. The sculptures are so deep and the property is beautiful. Great to go on nice day, so you can thoroughly enjoy strolling and seeing these priceless works of art.
