I absolutely loved the presentation - simple yet elegant and impactful. Each piece accompanied by a brief description of background. Opportunity to participate in 12noon tour made all the difference for me in understanding Rodin's inspirations - I agree with previous review that it would...More

Between the Barnes and the Art Museum it's an easy walk. Nice and cool inside with many of the classic Rodin sculptures you can see elsewhere but all the better for the focus only on Rodin.

Although we did not have the time to tour the artwork within, the exterior was quite compelling with the Thinker and the tortured Gates of Hell.

Take time in the library to sit and read. See the amazing sculptures - each with a story. Examine the exterior Gates of Hell and reflecting pool. A great spot to relax in the shade.

This came as a recommendation and it was a great suggestion. The donation is suggested and no pressure as to the amount. Can freely reflect and take pics. Easy to get to on the Phlash.

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 :)
