Visited the Rodin Museum for the first time this past week. I've always been a fan of Rodin's work (his mastery of the human form is second to none!), but had only seen a few pieces included in other exhibits. The museum has a wonderful collection of Rodin's work housed in a lovely setting. The gardens outside encourage you to... More

After the hubub of the neighboring museums, this was a lovely spot to stop. The outdoor gardens are beautiful. Indoors, it's nice and calm, and plenty of space to enjoy the sculptures. Even if you are on museum overload, do not miss this. The exhibits are spaced well and you can enjoy them.

Start your visit to the Rodin by walking around the grounds to appreciate the scale, strength, and magnificence of some of Rodin's larger works. Then linger at the entrance to appreciate the Gates of Hell. Wander the galleries then return to see if you can find the pieces within the Gates. Not enough art yet? Next walk over to the... More

After touring the Philadelphia Museum of Art, my wife, sister-in-law, and I took a brief walk to this magnificent, gem of a Museum. With beautiful grounds the Museum houses the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside of Paris. The collection is thoughtfully laid out, highlighting each sculpture's unique attributes. An iPad tour remarkably aids your visit. The Rodin Museum is... More

Beautiful building and garden. I wish I had read a bit more about Rodin before trying to understand the collection. Lovely space, though! Maybe allow 30 minutes for a quick once-over. Longer if you're really interested in the sculptures.

Beautiful ceremony held outside by the pool area. Amazing pictures taken in this area. One criticism was that the wait staff did not bring appetizers down to the lower area. Had to repeatedly request service in that area.

We had a great time taking our pictures with the Thinker statue! Visiting the museum itself was very rewarding.

This is not the Rodin in Paris but it sure is close! what a collection! It is an intimate experience with Rodin's work located in a spectacular location with a lovely garden, along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The building itself is a gem.
