    Must visit place. Don't miss the garden, it's wonderful too.

    This is an amazing museum! I guess there are two options: just the garden or garden and museum. Go for the full package. You won't be disappointed. Also it's part of the Museum Pass.

    A beautiful and recently refurbished museum with a quiet garden and café dotted with Rodin sculptures. A perfect place for a summer afternoon

    Love the garden and the building. I like Rodin but the most iconic items are in the garden! So just enjoy 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏼‍♂️ through the house.

    Beautiful and small museum. The garden is also amazing and you can enjoy your coffee or meal at the little Cafe in the garden

    The sculptures are amazing & don't miss the garden behind the museum. It's very normal for Parisians to sleep in a lawn chair whenever they are comfortable. I fit right in a took the best 20 min nap.

    The kiss sculpture inside the house is based on two doomed lovers (adulterers) from Dante's inferno. So it's a hell of a good kiss, as they say.

    The museum is not huge, I suggest starting with it and then go to the garden,it is beautiful! Try to go in the afternoon, before they close is less crowded.

    Located in the Hôtel Biron (where Rodin used as a workshop), is a must-visit for lovers of sculpture. This place is home to the famous The Thinker and The Kiss) Opens at 10am daily. Closed on Mondays.

    This museum was a bit underwhelming for me. Nice to see an entire room dedicated to Camille Claudel, his mistress, a very talented sculptor who died a sad death in relative obscurity.

    Must see: the Thinker, Balzac, Gates of Hell and the Kiss. The gardens are wonderful to explore Rodin's sculptures too. Paris has more museums than just the Lourve.

    Must see statue garden, his famous "Le Penseur" alone is worth the price of admission, the rest a tour through his artistic development and inner torment.

    The museum art is spectacular. The gardens are pleasant but for me a bit sterile. Often best to buy Robin ticket with other museum. Save time on line and money.

    I love Rodin, and this museum, housed in his former atelier, features a great collection of his work. The attached gardens is a great place for a picnic

    Bring a sketchbook or reading material and take a seat on one of the many benches or lawn chairs in the garden to enjoy the day in Paris. Quiet oasis in the city.

    A bucolic stroll in Rodin's footsteps. Sculptures of Rodin are of course on display but you'll get to admire pieces of arts by Camille Claudel, Monnet or Van Gogh. A must-see in Paris! Read more

    One of the best museums in town! The garden is a haven of peace with great art: The thinker and hell's gate! Not to mention "le baiser".

    Come on, you gotta see at least 1 museum while in Paris. This is a good one - beautiful setting and grounds, in and out in an hour.

    Rodin's sculptures that come alive at this smaller museum, which used to be his home. The grounds surrounding the museum are truly spectacular so be sure to take a picnic.

    Mon endroit favori et surtout le baiser, la sculpture magnifique et intemporelle. Check the garden for a romantic stroll leading to the Kiss, this timeless bronze sculpture from Rodin himself.

    Any person working on the human body (physically or artistically) should visit the museum. Furthermore, I ate a delicious banana pancake at the cafeteria, and the guard of the park is an extremely ecc

    The rest of the museum is cool, but if I went again I'd pay just for garden entrance, which is only one Euro. From there, see some of Rodin's most famous works, including The Thinker.

    Largely overlooked by tourists this is THE place to get (re)acquainted with Rodin and maybe sit a bit by The Thinker in the garden, contemplating?

    Rodin's tomb is underneath The Thinker. Check out 'Hell's Gate' & 'The 3 Shades' while you're in the gardens. Very impressive.
