The museum is ok, but the gardens are the best part! They are quite and beautiful in a busy city. They do have a spot where you can grab a quick lunch in the gardens or there are good cafes right outside the museum.
The former Hotel looks like a palatial mansion and and the location is ideal. From the garden you can take a picture of Rodin's thinker with Napoleon's grave and the Eifel Tower in the background. Handicap accessible and highly recommended!
Amazing inside and out! Enormous statues to small molds and drawings are on display. The talent showcased is exceptional.
