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.

You need to love sculpture to come here. Inside was a bit of a bore, except for. “The Kiss”. The gardens, on the other hand are beautiful, with many of Rodin’s monumental pieces displayed.

Every time I come to Paris I just NEED to visit this glorious gem! Even without the main museum, the gardens alone are a sheer delight, an oasis of calm and a time to forget time! Just sit anywhere in the garden and listen to the birdsong, the bells and crunch of gravelled paths underfoot as you gaze upon the sculpted forms of a pure master!
Sublime!

Sculpture artfully displayed in a magnificent formal garden. The indoor museum gave a lot of insight into the artist’s work.

This is a smaller museum which is fun to visit and learn about the artist and some of his artist friends. I encourage you to visit.

The musée Rodin is a small but beautiful museum in beautiful old house with immaculately maintained gardens. Although it seems that many of the sculptures within it are either not original or not sculpted by Rodin himself, it was nonetheless interesting and the audio guide was well designed to be informative but not too long. My 15yo and I who know very little about art really enjoyed half a day spent here in the sunshine.

I can't recommend this place enough. The grounds of the gardens are so beautiful, and the roses smell so good! We were there in early May, on a beautiful Sunday. It wasn't too crowded, but indoors was definitely more congested than outdoors. The gardens are so perfectly manicured, and it is amazing to see all the works by Rodin on display. There are so many! We saw TheThinker (outside) and The Kiss (inside). We were very impressed with this Musee. Loved it.

A visit to the Musee Rodin is a treasured experience of Paris, especially so after its recent renovation -- whether enjoying the well-tended gardens, fountain, and sculptures of the extensive grounds or wandering awestruck among the many masterpieces spread out among the two floors of the handsome museum interior. It would be hard to pick a favorite gallery, but the room that recreates the look of Rodin's former studio here is one highlight. Masterpieces abound, including the Age of Bronze, the Burghers of Calais, and the Gates of Hell. I was especially fascinated to see the many one-of-a-kind rough, clay maquettes on display, which offer visitors a beguiling glimpse into this great artist's process. There is also a small cafe on the grounds and a well-stocked bookstore/gift shop. And -- if all that isn't enough to tempt you -- it is also a delight to recall that in addition to Rodin, other famous residents here included Rainer Maria Rilke, Isadora Duncan, Jean Cocteu, and Henri Matisse . . .

First time at Rodin and we visited on May 14 during La Nuit des Musees where it was free entry after 6 pm at Rodin. The gardens and the building itself, Hotel Biron, are beautiful and captivating. There are many pieces by Rodin inside the hotel and in the gardens. Of course there is the Thinker, le penseur, a smaller version as well as the much larger one on display. The kisser, le Baiser, is also present but my favourite piece is the Tempest.

There were also many sculptures of victor hugo by Rodin and some paintings by Claudell, and a piece or two by Monet and Hugo.

To spend sometime on a cool afternoon in the garden is lovely as there are ample of benches.

We thoroughly enjoyed our complimentary visit as we saved 13 euros for full admission and 9 euros for seniors.

The Musée Rodin in Paris (there is a second Rodin Museum in Meudon) is a museum dedicated to the works of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. The collection is EXTENSIVE and includes sculptures, drawings, photographs and objets d’art.

The Musée Rodin contains many of Rodin's most well-known works including The Thinker, The Kiss and The Gates of Hell. Copies of his sculptures are displayed in the museum's extensive and beautiful gardens. (Gardens alone are worth the visit.)

DEFINITELY on your museum to-do list --if you have an extra day or two in Paris.

Rodin Museum is, from my point of view, one of the best museums in Paris. I had the same impression 10 years ago - beautiful building, excellent collection of scultures both inside and outside, amazing garden in the center of Paris.
