This is a unique, small and easy to handle museum that really reminds you of the one in Paris, both in the architecture and the overall feel of the place. The addition of tables and chairs on the small pond in front of the building...More

I loved learning more about the artist and how many times he entered competitions and used and reused "characters" that eventually were incorporated into his "Gates of Hell" You can see everything in about 2 hours.

If you plan to go to the Philadelphia Art Museum also, buy a combo ticket. Small museum with some interesting pieces in a beautiful setting.

Beautiful grounds and museum. Smaller interior than I expected. I'm not a particular fan of sculpture so it wasn't my favorite experience.

We went to this museum to see The Thinker but as this statue is outside, we did not venture into the museum itself. We are still unsure if this statue is a copy or the original but it was thrilling to see it just the...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 :)
