With over 140 bronzes, marbles, and plasters - including "The Thinker" - the distinguished collection housed in the Rodin Museum represents every phase of Auguste Rodin’s career. Located on Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the elegant...more

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.
With so many works by Rodin, a skillful tour guide, and a beautiful day, this was a perfect experience. Hearing the explanations of the sculptures was a real enhancement to the trip, and though the building is small, the contents are well worth a couple...More
If you are looking for something to rival the Paris Rodin Museum, you will be sorely disappointed. This museum is tiny.
But, if you are looking for a short but memorable visit, this museum is excellent. The collection is small, but wonderful, and the setting...More
This is another place NOT to miss in Philadelphia. This museum has the biggest collection of sculptures outside Paris. I stayed for over 2 hours sat down with these pieces. I came thing only of "The Thinker" and came away overwhelmed by his work. Not...More

Walking distance from PMA to Barnes & Rodin . PMA offers Rodin and Perelman package. Also free trolley transport between Perelman, PMA & Rodin . Trying to do those & Barnes would be mind boggling add penn academy for true circuit overload. Rodin & Perlman can be 4 hrs. PMA large area to cover so select what's impt. to you.
Barnes exquisite & eclectic. Sometimes you just have to sit & take in the placement & content of the artwork. Could be a full day alone. And you must have timed tix way in advance. PMA, Rodin& Perelman more user friendly. Tough choice! Have fun & welcome to Philly!
