Wow, what talent he had. Walk around the outside before going in. Make sure you let them know if you’re going to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The first Sunday of every month is “pay what you wish to contribute.”

The largest collection of Rodin works outside of France. There are some truly stunning pieces here. The grounds are welcoming and compelling, the entryway door The Gates Of Hell is a copy from the original and is a marvel in itself. Figures, hands and busts...More

The Rodin Museum offers a fine collection of Rodin, but we found it a bit of a disappointment. It is very small, and thus seen quickly, which is both good (time saving) but bad (not enough to linger over). But despite the Rodin collection, some...More
