  • Rodin House not far from the Woods and green this visit is a definite must for those who carry a certain interest to the artist who is buried in his garden under the thinker. The highlight of the tour is his workshop with original casts where the brilliance of the sculptor appears even more than in the bronzes. Large garden to enjoy the last sunny days of autumn.

  • Continuation of the essential and indispensable in Varenne Street, visit the Museum of Rodin in Meudon must be known. The House, the villa of the brilliant, modest house, is imbued with the presence of the sculptor. A part of his work is present in the plasters which are on display in the great Hall, the ground floor of his house is also open to you, and you have the chance to move around in the magnificent garden with view on the Ile Seguin, finally it is possible to you collect in the face of his grave. For only € 5, this is a moment of grace you loved or not the artist but not to love him.

  • I really recommend this place for a nice visit! The sculptures are incredible! Would be better to visit at spring or summer, because of the garden.
  • I have been to visit the Louvre more times than I can count; every visit is different from the last, and there's always something new. My last visit four years ago was the first I'd seen the excavations of the medieval Louvre, and I was surprised and thrilled to see even more excavation has been done since then. It's extremely well presented and very interesting. The building itself is as interesting as the art it contains. It's a mistake to rush to the 'show-stoppers' when there is so much more to see if you only do a little research before your visit. My personal favorite is the Veronese Marriage at Cana which happens to be across from La Joconde (otherwise known as Mona Lisa) but without the crowds. It's a massive piece and so full of movement and detail, color and life, that it never fails to take my breath away. I also have to make a stop (among others) at David's self portrait. I've always wondered what he was thinking, his expression is fathomless. He certainly had a lot to think about. If you've never been, try doing a bit of reading or watch a documentary on it before you go, and pick an area to really concentrate on, otherwise it tends to be a bit of a blur. My son has zero interest in art, but does enjoy history and architecture, and he was very glad he took this advice and so had a wonderful first visit. Our visit was in mid-December and we were able to walk right in. Because I am severely arthritic we borrowed a wheelchair and with my disabled ID from the DMV we both were able to enter for no charge, which was a pleasant surprise; and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.
  • It is Rodin what else is there to write.
  • Very small but it contains nice sculptures and a replica of his atelier.
  • A small but interesting museum, not far from Paris, for a well know artist! You can try to find the tomb under the "penseur". This is amazing to know that he was living there. Impressive work btw.
