At one point in time this was the sculptor’s studio, it is an amazing 18th century mansion and one of Paris’ (in my opinion) most beautiful museums. When we arrived (and with some pre-planning) we walked through the gardens absorbing the information. Inside the mansion and scattered through the gardens, there are more than 6,000 of Rodin’s sculptures, including his great masterpieces: The Thinker, The Kiss, The Burghers of Calais, and The Gates of Hell, along with 8,000 drawings and gouaches. I had a great time walking through the grounds of Musee Rodin, it is complete with a fountain, rose gardens, and a pleasant outdoor cafe made for a delightful afternoon spent under the sun. It was well worth the trip from our hotel.
The museum also hosts special exhibitions and a cycle of exhibits on contemporary works
