The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.

    Nice museum with a superb garden
    A nice museum dedicated to the art of the sculptor Rodin. Besides his sculptures, there are also things by Camille Claudel , as well as a few paintings by the most famous impressionists. There is also an extremely impressive garden filled with sculptors, as well as good coffee in it. We didn't have pre-purchased tickets but there was no queue and we got in straight away. Fron the garden there is a nice view of the Palais des Invalides and a part of the Eiffel Tower.

    It's more than you think
    We had a simple lunch of fruit and nuts in the Gardens beside "The Thinker". Students were enjoying the serenity as they studied literature - perhaps inspired. Wonderful sculptures of a man not always admired - full of ideas and inspiration.

    Rodin's sculptures in a garden setting
    This museum presents a good number of Rodin's sculptures in a conventional indoor museum setting and in a beautiful garden. On a sunny May morning when the roses are just coming into bloom the latter is unbeatable. I found myself focusing on the strength of the hands in Rodin's figures and the sense of movement that he creates. It is a great place to visit and a soothing contrast to much of the busy city.

    Contrasting emotive sculptures in a mellow garden settting
    Dramatic sculptures contrast with the peaceful garden setting. These emotive works of art capture a perspective of major figures of French culture giving new ideas on the development of French history. Lovely gardens (although the grass was drying out) but the roses are lovely. Café and toilets are useful! Costs 13 euros but worth it.

    Interesting visit in a nice neighbourhood
    Pros - crazy talent and beautiful (limited due to cinstructions) gardens Cons - half of the gardens are under constructions. The audio guide is an extra €6 each which is the dearest we have had in all tourist attractions. When you get the guide they just hand it out to you without explaining how to use so make sure you ask.

    Quick visit was plenty for us
    Did a quick visit to see the Thinker and a few other of Rodin’s works. We had already spent a long day walking so my teens were thrilled with the nice garden walk that wasn’t very big and a quick look at the first floor. We hit the ones my kids wanted to see. Easy to get to from the Metro, beautiful museum.

    Lovely visit to the Rodin museum!
    This museum is wonderful! The inside houses loads of sculptures and paintings and is really easy to navigate. There is so much to see! The outside is also fantastic, with more sculptures situated in extensive gardens. My partner and I really enjoyed the experience and I would highly recommend it! It isn't as busy as some of the more well-known museums such as the Louvre or the Musee D'orsay but it is well worth a visit and probably deserves more recognition.

    Interesting Museum
    We enjoyed this museum. We did not know a lot about Rodin but his sculptures are amazing. The building does not have air conditioning, so just a warning, it can be warm, but it was not miserable. Take the time to walk through the garden and see all of the works in the garden. There is a small cafe to stop and have a glass of wine and relax.

    A journey through Rodin's career
    Intimate museum in a relatively small building. Only about half of the works shown inside are completed and Rodin's, there are a lot of unfinished works. It's interesting but more guided toward taking you through Rodin's career and methods than being "a collection of his works." For someone just looking for the major works, there are a couple inside, but outside is probably more enjoyable. In addition to being a beautiful garden, there are probably a dozen or two sculptures there, including the Thinker and the Gates of Hell (a plaster of which can be seen at the Orsay) All around, if you have interest in a more 'storytelling' kind of art journey of a single artist, and have any interest in Rodin, you will like this museum

    Fabulous
    After several trips to Paris, I finally decided to visit the Rodin museum. Wonderful surprise. A pearl hidden in the heart of the city. Located in a magnificent palace with a fabulous garden. The works on display are extraordinary pieces of art. The works are divided into interior and exterior. The garden is an oasis of tranquility in the interior of Paris. I recommend without hesitation

This museum displays the works of the sculptor Auguste Rodin.
It is set in an old mansion and its attendant lovely garden right next to the Invalides in the center of Paris.
Along the way you can admire some of Rodin's own collection of art including a Monet and three Van Goghs

The Musee Rodin combines a sculpture garden with a traditional museum building. There are a number of great works here but the ones to not miss are The Thinker, The Kiss, and The Gates of Hell. Enjoy!

If you are a lover of sculpture, then you will not want to miss Musée Rodin. It’s more than worth the visit to see Rodin’s designs, models and paintings as it is to see his finished—and well known—pieces. This visitor was not aware of how many of Rodin’s sculptures originated in his La Porte de l’Enfer—particularly Le Penseur. If time allows, visit the museum on a dry day as so many of Rodin’s bronzes are in the surrounding gardens. Not to go unmentioned are the works by Rodin’s student, inspiration and lover, Camille Claudel. She was much misunderstood in her life, largely because she was a woman in a “man’s” profession, but I found her work equal to her teacher’s. In many ways her work is more fluid than that of Rodin. I was particularly impressed by her L’Âge mûr or, as I like to translate it, Ripe Old Age. Nuff’ said. The works of Rodin and Claudel make for a fascinating and rewarding visit.

I recently visited the Musée Rodin Paris and I was amazed by the incredible sculptures, casts and exhibitions. It's a great place to experience the culture of Paris and learn about the works of the legendary French sculptor Auguste Rodin. The museum is well-maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in art and culture!

No crowds, friendly temps. If you go, take time to look at the faces on the sculpture pieces. This presents a whole different perspective. Don't overlook the Burghers of Calais

What a surprise! The images of Rodin are so popularized in schmaltzy ways that I have never visited this museum. But for my son having read an excellent biography of the artist, it was top of his list. And he was right. The tree-lined grounds and atelier/house are a refuge of peacefulness that show the iconic pieces to stunning and poignant and, yes, private advantage. All the great works are there, many in later castings as is well-known. But the ensemble and preliminary sketches of The Burghers of Calais are reason enough to visit. An added benefit is that the crowds were small; the untimed tickets turn out to be convenient. I came away convinced.
