Very thoughtful

We had a great time taking our pictures with the Thinker statue! Visiting the museum itself was very rewarding.

This is not the Rodin in Paris but it sure is close! what a collection! It is an intimate experience with Rodin's work located in a spectacular location with a lovely garden, along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The building itself is a gem. It is operated by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, so if you purchase a ticket for the... More

This is a lovely place to visit both inside and out. Rodin was masterful and his work and this is a large collection of many of his famous works.

The exterior and interior of the museum is like a Georgian artist, Andro Wekua's installation art; I feel it's not just for a display of Rodin's sculptures but also for exhibition of his artworks and life. When I arrived there, the gate welcomed me- it's like one in Foro Romano (Roman forum) in Rome. Ironically, it's very classical style Rodin... More

The Rodin museum is small. First and foremost. It's understated and definitely focuses on the majesty of the works inside. It's also a pay what you want museum, with suggested donations replacing your standard, ticketed admission setup, making it a great stop for art lovers, history lovers and travelers on a budget.

A visit here is part of the admission to the Philadelphia Art Museum, but also can be toured separately for an admission of $10. Beautiful 1925 building houses the collection of Jules Mastbaum, a Philadelphia businessman. Many of Robin's major works are on display. We had an excellent, informative docent tour. Important note--this museum is closed on Tuesdays.

The gardens are small but lovely. "The Thinker" is there to greet you out at the front gate. "The Gates of Hell" is depicted in the middle of the museum before entering. Apparently a lot of bridal pictures are taken in front of it, with the happy couples either not caring or not realizing what's depicted. "The Kiss" and some... More

Enjoyed walking the garden area and the inside museum showing amazing Rodin works. It is a short walk from the Barn's Museum so you can do both if so inclined. It is a stop for the hop on/hop off bus and we did this along with the Barnes in an afternoon using the tour bus so we didn't have to... More

A world class exhibit. Second largest Rodin museum in the world, after Paris. I was spellbound by the Gates of Hell, the large doors actually outside the museum, on the front wall. I stared at the gate for over 1/2 an hour. If you are on a budget, just come and see the gate for free.
