The sculptures are dramatic and the varying sizes were surprising. My 10 year old son enjoyed using the free sketch pads. We both sketched and left something for the next guest. The gardens are very well maintained and quite peaceful. Staff was friendly and professional.

There is nothing like Rodin sculpture. And the original Gates of Hell - well heck, that is awesome! There are some beautiful pieces at this location - definitely worthy of the visit and the suggested donation admission price. They were setting up for a wedding...More

We unfortunately arrived too late to see the sculptures inside the museum but the grounds and exterior of the building are worth seeing. Several sculptures in the gardens & the the carvings on the doors are amazing.

Not only did my sister and I see several works by Rodin, we learned the history of the piece. Standing in front of such magnificent works, is truly a humbling experience.

A gem of a museum outside and inside. Fascinating how Rodin sculpted in clay and how mold is then made to pour the bronze. He did not like sculptures from marble as did Michaelangelo.

This place looked amazing when we approached it. It was so breathtaking, that a wedding stopped by and used it as their backdrop for pictures. Inside, is a unique collection of Rodin's work. It's not giant, but it's interesting and helps understand the artist's development....More

Didn't go inside; have been to the Rodin Museum in Paris. Replica of "The Thinker" at the entrance, along with the reflecting pool, and flora, very nice.

Honestly an hour is probably enough, but personally, sitting on the steps outside and just relaxing as it is a beautiful setting, might tack on some additional time :)
