Rodin, Rodin, and more Rodin

Few artists warrant a museum dedicated exclusively to their work. Rodin does and the Rodin Museum does not disappoint.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely museum. It is a quiet relaxing place. Do take a guided tour to learn fascinating facts about the sculptor and collector of these artifacts.

This is the second largest collection of Rodin's work. It is nicely presented in a beautiful building. It certainly gives you a good taste of Rodin's work. Don't miss the large bronzes outside. They are stunning.

This small well designed museum is well worth a few hours of one's time. We were able to have a well trained knowledgeable guide take us through the various sections of the museum. Our tour provided us with a wealth of knowledge and history of is unique artist.

This is a small museum, but one not to be missed if you love sculpture. Most famous sculptures are the The Thinker, The Kiss and the Gates of Hell. There are several sculptures in and around the gardens too.

The place was not free, but ticket cost can be reduce at the Museum of art above Rocky. The Rodin museum was relatively small but the sculpture was fantastic. I highly recommend this museum, Who doesn't like the Thinker?

...And it showed in the works of art that we viewed at this museum. Fun, modern, and simple, we enjoyed a day of interactive fun and beauty. The museum and sculpture garden are small but include a large body of work with a library and multiple stations where you can sketch and try your own hand at being an artist.... More

Not a huge collection but well curated and chosen. The building and grounds are beautiful and near a number of great attractions. So add this to a visit to the Barnes Foundation Collection.
