The museum was built to house the sculptures. I enjoyed the explanations of all of the pieces. The items were divided into rooms - room to sit and draw/sketch. Nice small gift shop. The "KISS" and "THINKER" are the highlights.

Stopped off here on a trolley tour, and found it to be fascinating. The original works contained in this place were very surprising and quite interesting. Great for a traveler on a budget.

Rodin is a master of sculpture, I loved learning about his pieces and the inside thoughts associated with each piece... his relationship with each of the models provided a nice glimpse of him as the artist.
