L'hôtel Biron houses the magnificent Rodin collection and pays tribute to his powerful contribution to French and European sculpture. Camille Claudel is also represented. The current exhibit on the development of his Porte de l'Enfer project is detailed, interesting and well-curated. The permanent collection is an eloquent testament to his innovative and compelling works and some pieces are displayed beautifully... More

The sculpture garden surrounding the museum was great. The museum itself was somewhat disappointing.

Out of the way and quite special. A hike from Notre Dame. But certainly worth the effort. An amazing collection of his works in a beautiful setting not overrun by tourists.

This museum which was also the house of Rodin has been recently refurbished. All the sculptures are displayed in the best possible way and truly enhance Rodin's art. We also discover his life and some pieces from Camille Claudel. The park is very pleasant and you can enjoy a drink at the cafe. A beautiful small museum. Guided tours are... More

I missed this museum on my first trip to Paris so I made sure to get there on my next trip. It's a beautiful museum filled with the works of Rodin and several other artists. There are sculptures and paintings throughout the museum and also outside in the gardens. The famous Thinker and Gates of Hell are outside and easily... More

A great collection of the work of Rodin in a wonderful outdoor setting. You have great access to see from all angles such great works as The Thinker and the Gates of Hell. A must see.

I first visited the Musee Rodin 5 years ago. When I returned, I was pleased with how the curators had rotated what was on display. His iconic works were still holding forth, but the lesser known pieces from throughout his career, including his paintings, were different, and I really feel I got a fresh view of his career.

The museum exhibition is laid out so that you can follow the development of his ideas, his models and then the final work of art. Stroll around the outer gardens and come upon the breathtaking strength of the major scuptures.
