This is a hidden gem. I've been coming here since I was little. The sculptures are magnificent and the curator does rotate the art so there is something new to see. Took a tour for the first time last week. They only offer one tour a day so plan accordingly. After all the times I was there without a tour... More

A beautiful mostly outdoor museum containing the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside of France. I say mostly outdoor because some sculptures are contained in niches. There are over 140 sculptures but less than 200, so keep that in mind when planning your trip here. The museum opens around 10am and I believe closes at 5pm and is closed Tuesdays

We LOVED this museum. It is bright, spacious and airy and everything is displayed sensitively and intelligently (not like the Barnes). Despite all the history around us, this was my favourite place in Philadelphia. The shop has great items, the art is truly spectacular and there are seats to let you really look at the art. Don't miss it.

This museum was closed for renovation, therefore we did not get to go inside. However, there are several exhibits outside that can still be seen. Such as, "The Thinker".

One walks through the museum seeing human forms exiting with passion from blocks of marble or bronze. The grounds (a former Hotel where Rodin stayed) are amazing with statues, trees, flowers, and paths that lead you to new discoveries. I admit, however, that a majority of the works were summed up in the "Door to Hell" that was commissioned by... More

the admission was included in the cost paid at the Museum of Art a few blocks away. To me this was a perfect museum. Small but perfect. Indoor and outdoor works and very comfy places to sit. Staff extremely pleasant and info by each piece very informative and easy to read.

The Rodin Museum provides the visitor with an "up close and personal" experience with the works of a great artist. The museum was not crowed and we did not feel pressure to move through it quickly. It is an intimate experience that shouldn't be missed.

My husband and I spent an hour here on a cold Sunday in February. From the opening door, flanked by Rodin's large bronze doors "The Gates of Hell" to his small clay studies for different subsequent bronzes, this is a delightful way to spend some time learning about one of France's premiere sculptors. The museum is small and easily covered,... More

Small building with lots of Rodin works an replicas. It was not crowded. There appear to be some beautiful grounds but being there in the winter it was hard to tell.

A very nice collection of the sculptor's art represented in the museum. Museum is pretty small, about 30 minutes visit, but very nice and educative.
