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?

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.

The museum doesn't have a set admission price. Instead, they ask you for donations. They have ipads you can use as a tour guide throughout the museum. Alot of the info on them was the same as the plaques however so we stopped using it...More

This was a fabulous collection of Rodin's work. Hugely impressive. The surroundings are lovely and the sculptures in the garden are wonderful.

The Rodin sculptures were magnificent in this small but lovely museum. I went in knowing only of the Thinker and the Kiss, but came out a well-informed Rodin enthusiast. Note: Admission is suggested at $10 per adults, but you may pay what you wish.

If you don't have much time in Philly, schedule your visits to Barnes Foundation and Rodin Museum for the same day. We did that, and it was both convenient and enjoyable

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 :)
