4.4/5 based on 8,500+ reviews on the web
Dedicated to the works of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, Rodin Museum 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.

  • Very nice place to walk around in an exceptional setting. Access to the gardens is inexpensive and you will discover the most beautiful monumental sculptures of the artist and you will be in a bucolic setting in the heart of Paris. not very good cafeteria in the garden with salads and sweets. The dream somehow.

  • Private and self-financed museum ticket is not cheap but the visit gives great satisfaction; the work of Rodin and his artistic group is exposed with care and there are tons of beautiful sculptures. Fantastic Van Gogh painting depicting Pere Taugy in his art workshop. A curiosity: Rodin bequeathed all his works to the city of Paris provided the Hotel Biron, the current Museum, which he used as a workshop, it was renovated and dedicated to House his works.

  • It has become a must-see Paris especially since it has been completely restored and brilliantly restored. Rodin's work is presented in way more human and less frozen than in other museums els and the work of Camille Claudel (Rodin to whom a lot) finally made its fair place, IE the first! A great success both of the Parisian monument restoration and museography. The private hotel garden which was and remains the Hôtel de Biron, a particularly stylish place, worth that we walk and we stroll there, weather permitting, to appreciate what could be the art of French living... in the acceptance of the term!

  • Impressive display of beautiful works. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. Well worth a few hours of your time.
  • Went primarily to see the Thinker, but enjoyed much more. The little cafe inside is a decent place to stop for a quick cup of coffee or a snack. Nice ambience in the back garden area.
  • Small but interesting and relatively inexpensive. You don't need to know about Rodin to appreciate his works. There are tickets for just the garden and/or the museum, both of which I would recommend.
  • Well organized and great collections indoors and out. The best part is the fabulous formal sculpture garden with monumental Rodin sculptures throughout and photogenic views.
  • Do the full tour. Many of hte piece in the garden only make sense when you visit the house. A unique place and experience.
