Dedicated to the works of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, Musee Rodin is home to the master sculptor's workshop and contains most of his significant creations including "The Thinker," "The Kiss," and "The Gates of Hell."

The awesome collection includes 6,600 sculptures, 8,000 drawings, 8,000 old photographs, and 7,000 objets d’art.

  • Rodin lived here for a while when it was broken into apartments. Originally a grand mansion in a neighborhood of mansions. Now full of Rodin's treasures, but the best part is the garden fill of his....  more »
  • Very nice museum displaying Rodin's sculptures. Easy walk. The architecture of the museum is also an a great sight. Seeing the Thinker was really cool  more »
  • Was really impressed with this museum. It wasn't so large it was overwhelming like many other museums in Paris, this is incredibly manageable and enjoyable. A collection of ALL of Rodin's works across painting, sculpture, etc. The home and the gardens are great, there is a cafe on site as well. Highly recommend and allow yourself some time to sit in the garden.
  • My new favorite museum in town! Wasn't crowded, leaving plenty of space and time to fully appreciate the art on hand. So incredible to see the multiple iterations Rodin would often go through in his creative process, without feeling rushed by the crowd that one might expect to be filling the museum of such an icon.
