An underappreciated gem in Philadelphia's stellar Museum district. I have been inside before but went recently for a quick walk around the outside and was again reminded of Rodin's genius in capturing and expressing the human form in a way that makes you the thinker.

To be surrounded by Rodin's sculptures is heavenly. To be so close to them you can almost feel them move. They are exquisite, a true master. The museum is small so you can take you time and really indulge.

Not much to say, it’s best to just go. The museum is tiny, but the collection of works by the outstanding Rodin is impressive. If you are not a fan while coming in, you’ll be a fan by the time you leave.

A stop on my quest to check out the “Gates of Hell” around the world. Also who doesn’t know the “Thinker”? Small and beautiful collection. Admission is a donation. Don’t skip this treasure while visiting museums in the area.

Interesting museum, not real big but does have a Bronze of the THINKER, which is the most notible piece of Rodin. Be Aware that it is advertised as free or pay whatever you wish in donation, but you are pressured to pay a high price...More

The Rodin museum is a small museum with a lot of art. Don’t miss the huge Gates Of Hell and the Thinker sculptures. It was a great destination on a cold day. Admission is suggested but you pay what you want

If you're in the neighborhood, I'd say it's worth a stop to learn a bit more about Rodin and see some of his work. But I wouldn't make a special trip unless you're a huge Rodin fan. It's a small exhibit, which took us about...More

I've been to the Rodin Museum in Paris, so I was hesitant to go here. It was very nice! Well displayed, visually appealing. Certainly worth the visit.

A terrific collection of his works. You will be amazed by what is in this small museum. Enjoy it. There is also a Whole Foods right behind where you can get a bite to eat.

I was skeptical at first, having been to Rodin's house, but walked away pleasantly surprised by the number of pieces on display. Most of the well known works were represented: the Tinker in two sizes, the Gates of Hell, various models and casts of Balzac,...More

Honestly an hour is probably enough, but personally, sitting on the steps outside and just relaxing as it is a beautiful setting, might tack on some additional time :)
