Few artists warrant a museum dedicated exclusively to their work. Rodin does and the Rodin Museum does not disappoint.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely museum. It is a quiet relaxing place. Do take a guided tour to learn fascinating facts about the sculptor and collector of these artifacts.

This is the second largest collection of Rodin's work. It is nicely presented in a beautiful building. It certainly gives you a good taste of Rodin's work. Don't miss the large bronzes outside. They are stunning.

This is a small museum, but one not to be missed if you love sculpture. Most famous sculptures are the The Thinker, The Kiss and the Gates of Hell. There are several sculptures in and around the gardens too.

The place was not free, but ticket cost can be reduce at the Museum of art above Rocky. The Rodin museum was relatively small but the sculpture was fantastic. I highly recommend this museum, Who doesn't like the Thinker?

Not a huge collection but well curated and chosen. The building and grounds are beautiful and near a number of great attractions. So add this to a visit to the Barnes Foundation Collection.

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 :)
