This was a fabulous collection of Rodin's work. Hugely impressive. The surroundings are lovely and the sculptures in the garden are wonderful.

The Rodin sculptures were magnificent in this small but lovely museum. I went in knowing only of the Thinker and the Kiss, but came out a well-informed Rodin enthusiast. Note: Admission is suggested at $10 per adults, but you may pay what you wish.

If you don't have much time in Philly, schedule your visits to Barnes Foundation and Rodin Museum for the same day. We did that, and it was both convenient and enjoyable

This museum is just the right size. You can really focus on Rodin's work both in the building and out in the garden. Friendly and helpful staff. There are places to sit both inside and out.

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 :)
