The museum houses the largest collection of work by Auguste Rodin, the father of modern sculpture. Rodin worked in the main building here, known as Hôtel Biron, and personally chose the location for all the pieces in the garden. It is such an idyllic setting, with rosebushes and fountains, that I go there twice a month just to read and draw. The life of Rodin is complex, so I suggest the audio guide. Also, don’t miss his masterpiece “The Gates of Hell,” located outside to the left of the entrance. He worked for years on it in plaster, but died before it was cast in bronze.
Don’t miss the garden open untill late in the warm season you can picnic in this romantic setting
amazing museum and even more amazing garden with Rodin sculptures, one of my favorite gardens to relax and read in peace in the heart of the city
18th-century mansion & sculpture garden displaying Rodin's influential works, such as The Thinker.
Close to the Invalides and the Eiffel Tower, the musée Rodin is one of the most enchanting place in Paris. It is composed of a unique 18th century mansion and a sculptures garden which covers nearly 3 hectares at the very heart of Paris. The perfect harmony of this garden laid out around Rodin’s…
My favorite museum... For Rodin's work. For the building. For the garden, where you can access just for a walk, a tea, and spend time there. So inspiring and harmonious! Don't miss it. you can go walking from home (25 minutes).
“Two huge buildings and one building is for food and the other is for clothes. High end shop but worth going just to look. The food building is my favorite and there’s 4 floors. Each floor is dedicated to either wine, groceries, kitchen supplies and then furniture. Beautiful place ”
“Beautiful 19th century art. The biggest impressionist collection in the world. Incredible temporary exhibitions ”
“Majestic park overlooking the Luxembourg Palace. A visit here is most enjoyable at any time of the year. So much to see: the ducks swimming in front of the enormous Medici Fountain, children sending an armada of small boats across the pond, the parade of sculptures of the queens of France, the manicured Palace gardens. Take a seat and enjoy the people-watching! You can also just relax, enjoy a sandwich or read a book (plenty of chairs and benches). To do some jogging this is also a great place! Free entrance.”
