Did not realize this Museum existed in Philadelphia. Saw a review in our local newspaper a few weeks before we visited. And a friend recommended seeing it. Although this weekend was after their big snowstorm we were able to find street parking alongside the museum. We had an excellent tour guide and were very impressed with Rodin's sculptures. Going to... More

The Rodin houses sculptures by Rodin primarily. The Gates of Hell on the outside of the museum are by themselves worth a visit. The Rodin is part of a trio: entrance to the Museum of Art, the Perelman and the Rodin are all on one ticket and the three are quite near each other as well. An especially lovely place... More

Having visited the Rodin in Paris, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I can honestly say I was not disappointed. While it is small in comparison, it is beautifully designed. The entrance and gardens are lovely - even in winter - and provide a beautiful setting for the museum and art pieces outside. The Thinker, the Gates of Hell... More

The building and grounds are beautiful and some of his best works are on display outside. Inside it just gets better. A well curated collection and free with your ticket to the Philadelphia Art Museum, it is well worth the time and short walk. The tours are informative and free.

The museum is not very big but have a great collection of Rodin art. "The Gates of Hell" is a magnificent piece. I can look at the art for hours and find something amazing every time. Rodin sculptures have greater life when lighted properly and the museum did a great job in that regard.

Entrance passes at the Phil Museum of Art are accepted here also. If you enjoy sculpture and Rodin, this is the ONLY place to go! These are NOT replicas. They are the real thing. Some from the first makings to the final work. One can get close to the works; take pictures (FLASH OKAY)!

This is a small museum with a small number of pieces, The Thinker, The Gates of Hell, the Three Shades, The Cathedral... your ticket to the Museum of Art will get you into the Rodin and it's right next door. Don't miss it.

We stopped here on a historical tour of Philly. It was small but excellent. You can view it all in less than 30mins. Some amazing Rodin pieces, especially on the grounds. Highly recommend you visit.
