This is where Auguste Rodin spent the last years of his life, from 1908 to 1917. Since then, his superb sculptures and private art collection have been housed here. There are a number of sculptures in the garden, including his best-known piece, the Thinker. Trees provide welcome shade and the benches placed beneath make these peaceful surroundings the perfect spot for meditation and relaxation. An annex to this museum; the Villa des Brillants, which the artist bought in 1895; is located in Meudon. Call ahead or check the website for hours of operation.
My husband and I were celebrating an anniversary in Paris and brought the ultimate lunch--a French baguette, cheeses, a ripe pear and a bottle of wine. We sat in a most beautiful garden behind the Rodin museum-- the sky was bright blue and the sun shining on that September day and all around us were the most beautiful works of art. When most people think of Rodin, "The Thinker" is all that comes to mind. Seeing all the exquisite works in the garden and the museum was a revelation. So if you find yourself in Paris- with someone you love- go to the Rodin Museum--and don't forget lonch.
The exhibits are displayed in the rooms of a house and in the garden. The collection includes "The kiss" and "The gates of Hell" which are amazing to see. The atmosphere is great and it wouldn't be boring even for kids.
I just returned from a week's holiday in Paris - The Musee Rodin is a must see! The Garden was so beautiful and romantic, the art so moving.
This Museum and Garden represented Paris perfectly for all it's beauty, power and grace.
I recommend it to all. I will certainly return.
Most of the museum is outside which makes for an excellent stroll on a nice day. Very relaxed feel in a great part of town. Much nicer and much more worth while than the more popular Invilades down the street.
I have been to the Musee Rodin three times and each time is great. Beautiful grounds with the sculptures among the trees and hedges. There is a nice shop to buy a lunch and drinks. Lots of seating in the garden area for a picnic. It is very close to the subway. Nice way to see what a Paris home looked like in the late 19th century.
if you call yourself a fan of rodin, you definately have to visit this place. admission is cheap (get the one-day museum pass, to get you free entrance to most museums in paris--if not all) and you get to see most of his famous works (and some of camille claudel's). the garden at the musee rodin is well kept and house some of the sculputer's masterpieces: the thinker, the burghers of calais and gates of hell. words cant describe it, you have to be there to experience it yourself.
p.s. there's another rodin museum located outside paris, at meudon. also the place where rodin is buried along with his wife.
Paris has many famous and beautiful museums. One could spend days in the Louvre alone. The Musee Rodin, however, will only take a couple hours of your time. We fell in love with the museum, and would absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting Paris.
