  • This was a short stop on our way to San Jowe. The garden is wonderful. It is clean & family freindly. The adjacent parking lots are free in the summer do look online. We took about 25 minutes to view ...  more »
  • Both for the visitors that for the student community, this Museum offers a rich collection of RODIN sculptures. If admission to the famous American University is not within the reach of all budgets, the entrance to the Museum is free. So you have to enjoy it and the pleasure will be all over.

  • A beautiful collection of Rodin. Very nicely built garden geometry, all logical and convenient. Startled and extremely surprised, "Gates of hell", not even implied that Rodin is and such.

  • If you love Rodin, the qty of sculptures in the beautiful exterior garden is not to be missed. There is an enormous gates of hell sculpture flanked by Adam & Eve that is breathtaking. The qty of the smaller pieces inside is also amazing. I enjoyed learning the significance of the Burghers of Calais, prominent in the collection.
  • Both the sculpture garden and neighboring museum are a place to spend an enjoyable and quiet few hours. The garden is peaceful and enjoyable for reading outside on a sunny day. Plenty of benches and areas of lawn where one can sit.
  • A hidden treasure on Stanford campus - the Gates of Hell exhibit alone makes it well worth a visit.
  • This a great place for small children to run around and burn some energy either before or after visiting the art museum. Nice open area with benches.
  • Sculpture garden with *20* sculptures by Auguste Rodin. Set on a beautiful campus, this is a must see if you're in the area and enjoy art. Parking has a nominal fee, but the garden is *FREE*. Everything is very well spaced and you can view all sculptures from every angle. While there's frequent visitors, it was never crowded or difficult. Photos were easily snapped without bothering anyone. If you're here any day but Tuesday, consider visiting the Cantor Art Center as well (also free).
