The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.

    Interesting visit in a nice neighbourhood
    Pros - crazy talent and beautiful (limited due to cinstructions) gardens Cons - half of the gardens are under constructions. The audio guide is an extra €6 each which is the dearest we have had in all tourist attractions. When you get the guide they just hand it out to you without explaining how to use so make sure you ask.

    Quick visit was plenty for us
    Did a quick visit to see the Thinker and a few other of Rodin’s works. We had already spent a long day walking so my teens were thrilled with the nice garden walk that wasn’t very big and a quick look at the first floor. We hit the ones my kids wanted to see. Easy to get to from the Metro, beautiful museum.

    Lovely visit to the Rodin museum!
    This museum is wonderful! The inside houses loads of sculptures and paintings and is really easy to navigate. There is so much to see! The outside is also fantastic, with more sculptures situated in extensive gardens. My partner and I really enjoyed the experience and I would highly recommend it! It isn't as busy as some of the more well-known museums such as the Louvre or the Musee D'orsay but it is well worth a visit and probably deserves more recognition.

    Interesting Museum
    We enjoyed this museum. We did not know a lot about Rodin but his sculptures are amazing. The building does not have air conditioning, so just a warning, it can be warm, but it was not miserable. Take the time to walk through the garden and see all of the works in the garden. There is a small cafe to stop and have a glass of wine and relax.

    A journey through Rodin's career
    Intimate museum in a relatively small building. Only about half of the works shown inside are completed and Rodin's, there are a lot of unfinished works. It's interesting but more guided toward taking you through Rodin's career and methods than being "a collection of his works." For someone just looking for the major works, there are a couple inside, but outside is probably more enjoyable. In addition to being a beautiful garden, there are probably a dozen or two sculptures there, including the Thinker and the Gates of Hell (a plaster of which can be seen at the Orsay) All around, if you have interest in a more 'storytelling' kind of art journey of a single artist, and have any interest in Rodin, you will like this museum

    Fabulous
    After several trips to Paris, I finally decided to visit the Rodin museum. Wonderful surprise. A pearl hidden in the heart of the city. Located in a magnificent palace with a fabulous garden. The works on display are extraordinary pieces of art. The works are divided into interior and exterior. The garden is an oasis of tranquility in the interior of Paris. I recommend without hesitation

    Well worth a visit, a short distance from the Musee d'Orsay
    A really nicely laid out museum, and very easy walking distance from the Musee d'Orsay. The large sculptures in the garden are fantastic, particularly the Burghers of Calais and Three Shades. There are other artist's works here as well as those by Rodin. There are paintings by van Gogh, Renoir and Sargent and I enjoyed the works by some I hadn't heard of before such as Frits Thaulow. I particularly like the sculptures by Camile Claudel. All in all its a very worthwhile visit.

    Beautiful and peaceful
    The scuplture collection was priceless. Such a gift to be able to scuplt like that and a gift for us to be able to see it. The kisser, the thinker, Balzac, all there for us to admire. The gardens are very peaceful. We were able to relax and even fell asleep on the lounges stratigically placed in the shade. It was one of the best experiences.

    Great museum
    Really enjoyed this museum. I would not call it a must do, but on a nice day the gardens are well worth a walk around with the thinker and other fine statues to enjoy. Inside of the house you get a walk through the journey and life of Rodin's work. Its well worth going to see. We did a double ticket with Musee d'Orsay and walked between the two - great value.

    Rhodin’s masterpieces beautifully displayed inside and outside
    The Musee Rhodin in the Hotel Biron exhibits the iconic works of the master sculptor both throughout the lovely gardens and within the classic mansion where he once lived. Located in the heart of Paris it is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city and houses the world famous “Thinker” ( Le Penseur ) in the garden along with a gift shop with many replicas in various sizes. Well worth a few hours time.

A stunning building and grounds; the view of the Invalides dome is amazing too. A wonderful experience to see Rodin’s creations.

Musée du Rodin is always my favorite museum. Just invest two hours indoor and outdoor to admire all the displayed exhibits.

With the Paris museum pass, I simply skip the ticketing line to go straight into the museum.

Right at the entrance of the exhibit room and on the left hand side, there is a video display showing the complicated steps in producing the bronze scriptures.

On the ground floor nearing exit, there is another video display of Rodin’s decision to donate his art pieces.

In the later decades of Rodin, there were photography and video-taping technology. If I were Rodin with an international horizon, I would have felt the technology’s threat to the values of all my past and future artworks. With only a few hours, an artistic image could be produced with technology: that is the efficiency demanded by high network customers, especially when it concerns a client’s personal portrait to project a positive his/her self image.

Rodin was smart to have donated all his art pieces, designs, and correspondences to the Government, but of course, the donation with the condition that the government must keep the accommodation of all the art pieces unchanged is only possible because of Rodin’s renowned reputation.

Beautiful and thoughtful exhibition, both within the house and in the gardens, where one will find ‘le penseur’. It was an afterthought on our part ti visit the house, but well well worth it.

A must see. A gallery full of sculptures through the various stages of Rodin’s learning and life - and then the gardens extend the experience in a wonderful way.

Definitely do the audio tour to gain the most of your visit.

The Rodin museum houses some of his most famous works The Thinker, The Kiss and the truly amazing the Gates of Hell to name but a few. He was also a collector of art so some famous artist of the times are also available for viewing. It’s a nice place to also get away from the hustle and bustle of Paris and relax in the garden.

After the crazy dangerous crowds at the Louvre, the Rodin museum was a delight. There were a couple hundred people but they were spread between the gardens and house. Although I am familiar with Rodin
I didn’t know he was also a collector. He had a nice Munch, and two Van Gogh’s among other sculptures and antiques. The house overlooks the garden and it is a lovely setting. We stopped for a drink at the end of our visit and passed on the food as it looked like cafeteria food. Highly recommend!

This museum displays the works of the sculptor Auguste Rodin.
It is set in an old mansion and its attendant lovely garden right next to the Invalides in the center of Paris.
Along the way you can admire some of Rodin's own collection of art including a Monet and three Van Goghs

The Musee Rodin combines a sculpture garden with a traditional museum building. There are a number of great works here but the ones to not miss are The Thinker, The Kiss, and The Gates of Hell. Enjoy!

If you are a lover of sculpture, then you will not want to miss Musée Rodin. It’s more than worth the visit to see Rodin’s designs, models and paintings as it is to see his finished—and well known—pieces. This visitor was not aware of how many of Rodin’s sculptures originated in his La Porte de l’Enfer—particularly Le Penseur. If time allows, visit the museum on a dry day as so many of Rodin’s bronzes are in the surrounding gardens. Not to go unmentioned are the works by Rodin’s student, inspiration and lover, Camille Claudel. She was much misunderstood in her life, largely because she was a woman in a “man’s” profession, but I found her work equal to her teacher’s. In many ways her work is more fluid than that of Rodin. I was particularly impressed by her L’Âge mûr or, as I like to translate it, Ripe Old Age. Nuff’ said. The works of Rodin and Claudel make for a fascinating and rewarding visit.
