This is heaven for Rodin fans. Regular art fans can move thru this small gallery quickly. The architecture perfectly displays the many statues and installations in this museum.

We enjoyed our visit. I grew up in Kansas City and the large Thinker is there. This is a nice relaxing place to visit. Sculpture inside and out.

Interesting, not very large but worth the visit. Thinker was beautiful, and gates of hell very intricate. Enjoy the visit.

Small, tidy and unique collection of works. Suggested donation was $8 I think. I gave $5 which I think was adequate for the amount on display.

While Rodin was a great artist, I didn't find the collection stunning. The best work may be outside the Museum and view-able for free. Unless you purchase the pkg to see multiple museums or homes, the Rodin museum itself is pay what you want and...More

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 :)
