Dedicated to the works of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, Musee Rodin is home to the master sculptor's workshop and contains most of his significant creations including "The Thinker," "The Kiss," and "The Gates of Hell." You'll find many of the statues displayed in the lush gardens surrounding the villa. The art on display inside is very diverse, as Rodin was an art collector in addition to being an artist himself. The awesome collection includes 6,600 sculptures, 8,000 drawings, 8,000 old photographs, and 7,000 objets d’art. Paintings you can see from Rodin’s personal collection include works by Vincent van Gogh, Camille Claudel, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

Was really impressed with this museum. It wasn't so large it was overwhelming like many other museums in Paris, this is incredibly manageable and enjoyable. A collection of ALL of Rodin's works across painting, sculpture, etc. The home and the gardens are great, there is a cafe on site as well. Highly recommend and allow yourself some time to sit in the garden.
My new favorite museum in town! Wasn't crowded, leaving plenty of space and time to fully appreciate the art on hand. So incredible to see the multiple iterations Rodin would often go through in his creative process, without feeling rushed by the crowd that one might expect to be filling the museum of such an icon.
