This is a lovely, small collection of Rodin's sculptures that doesn't take long to explore, but is worth every second. The surrounding gardens are not just a feast for the eyes, they offer a serene spot in a very busy city.

I'm a fan of Rodin, and found it amazing to see so many of this works in the USA. The museum/grounds itself was done very nicely. Really enjoyable and well-done.

This Rodin Museum is the second largest in the world, only surpassed by the original in Paris. Very nice display of Rodin’s works. Definitely put it on your list of places to visit.

Love this little museum with some of the greatest sculptures by Rodin. Just a walk through the gardens is totally worth it and you can see some of the sculptures for free.

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 :)
