Create an itinerary including Musee Rodin
Dedicated to the works of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, Musee Rodin is home to the master sculptor's workshop and contains most of his significant creations including "The Thinker," "The Kiss," and "The Gates of Hell." You'll find many of the statues displayed in the lush gardens surrounding the villa. The art on display inside is very diverse, as Rodin was an art collector in addition to being an artist himself. The awesome collection includes 6,600 sculptures, 8,000 drawings, 8,000 old photographs, and 7,000 objets d’art. Paintings you can see from Rodin’s personal collection include works by Vincent van Gogh, Camille Claudel, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

  • This was the only museum we visited during our stay in Paris and I'm really glad we went. The building and gardens were beautiful, and of course the art was excellent.

  • Luckily we had perfect weather to visit the Rodin Museum, as most of the sculptures are in the beautiful gardens. It really is a stunning way to experience art. The gardens are peaceful and calm...

  • One of the many museums well worth experiencing. Buy your entrance ticket (and audio ticket, which I highly recommend) online and in advance. Currently it can be used anytime within the year, at your convenience. The audio is well done and provides a great deal of perspective on Rodin's life, relationships, and how his work evolved through the years. Plan to go when the weather is nice so you can enjoy wandering the lovely sculpture gardens and relax for lunch or a drink at the outdoor cafe. There are many benches around to sit and take in your surroundings, to read or rest your feet. GR Codes are a must to enter museums and most other activities and restaurants, be prepared to show it as it will be scanned for entry.
  • Rodin's home and grounds are as beautiful and refreshing as his art is. Le Penseur (The Thinker), one of Rodin's most famous sculptures, makes his permanent home here. There is also a wonderful cafe on site with some delicious food. Tables and chairs are set up in the garden as well as an ice cream cart. It was so lovely and peaceful here. I recommend planning on staying a while to see all of the art, the estate, and the grounds. Stop by the cafe for refreshments and rest awhile and just enjoy the grounds. Public restrooms are available and they were well maintained.
