Located in this 18th-century hotel (Hotel Biron), Musee Rodin holds an impressive collection of works by this famous French sculptor and his circle as Camille Claudel. The museum also features an exquisit garden and a temporary exhibition hall.
Rodin’s sculptures are amazing but the Thinker is the star. Surrounded by gardens and other sculptures the setting is beautiful. On a very hot day, the ice cream was wonderful and museum worth it. Another beautiful part of Paris.
I was very keen to visit this museum as I find Rodin's sculptures beautiful. However, I felt that there weren't as many of his pieces on display as I had expected. Also, I thought there would be more of the larger, more impressive pieces to...More
Here the location is as much the site as the art. I am big fan of Rodin and you see all of the pieces you come for. But the truly cool part of the experience is strolling through his gardens. There are of course sculptures...More
What a peaceful place in the centre of the city. The roses were lovely.
We viewed the works of Rodin an amazing feat in itself. What a clever artist. It was awesome to see his work up close. He was quite prolific. Great museum.
Viewing Rodin's works up close was amazing. Biggest disappoint in July were: too many visitors in the mansion at once and on a hot day! Also, when we visited the fountain was under repair and the great lawn was not accessible either.
In spite of the outdoor construction, the museum and gardens were lovely. Rodin began in this mansion as a squatter, along with other artists of the time. it is the perffect arena to display his powerful work.
The sculpture garden is really the star here allowing you the space and time to experience the amazing sculptures in 360 degrees. Once you get inside the museum its sort of just more of the same and once the 8th room of heads had been...More
There are many sculptures (including the famous Thinker), some paintings, and a beautiful garden (with more sculptures). Overall, will appeal to those with special affinity for sculpture; probably just a checkmark for others.
As any times as we have been to Paris, we have never been to the Rodin Museum—- our loss. It is very well set up with large works set up throughout gorgeous gardens and identifying placards nearby. Then there is the former hotel full of...More
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and
politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
