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.

Easily reached by underground, this museum is close to Les Invalides. The most interesting pieces (including "The Thinker") are the bronzes, displayed outside in the large "Sculpture Garden." Rodin actually lived here for a while.

Very small museum 2 story museum in a mansion with not many original/finished pieces of Rodin. Lots of unfinished plaster models used to make Rodin’s lesser known pieces. Took less than 30 minutes to see whole museum. Garden area is nice. Ticket taker was very rude and acted like she hated her job and didn’t want to be there. I wouldn’t pay extra to just see just this museum, but if it’s included in your Paris Museum Pass fees or you just finished Les Invalides /Musée d’Armée/Napoleon’s Tomb and you’ve seen everything else you wanted too there and have an extra 30 minutes to kill, then it’s an ok visit. I’d rather spent more time at Musée d’Orsay or Musée d’Armée.

Although other Rodin Museums exist in France and internationally, the Musee Rodin Paris holds an additional "stunning" aura due to the location, formerly named Hotel Biron, being the residence of Rodin.

The exhibition consists of a chronological and somewhat categorical organization of Rodin's works as well as those of his students, most notably Camille Claudel, and paintings by other notable artists that were a part of his collection. I was especially stunned by the scale of these sculptures, many of which I had only seen digitally.

The gardens encompassing the main museum building were small, but especially nice when paired with autumn leaves and the breeze. Many notable works by Rodin, such as the Gates of Hell, the Thinker, Monument to Balzac, and Burghers of Calais were dispersed around the garden. There was a wedding going on at the time of my visit, which slightly interrupted the atmosphere.

A visit to the museum should take around an hour although, like other museums, may be shorter or longer depending on your interest and background in art and history. Booking tickets before your visit is also recommended, as it allows you to skip the ticket queue and almost instantly enter the museum premises. Like other museums in Paris, it is free for all individuals aged 18 or under.

If you like sculpture, this major museum is a must for you. Rodin actually lived in this mansion for a few years. Now it contains many of his masterpieces and a lot of them are out in the beautiful garden. Located in one of Paris' classic neighborhoods.

This lovely home is chocked full of Rodin's works and surrounded by lovely gardens, all nestled nextdoor to Napoleon's Tomb ("Les Invalides") The garden is a great spot to sit and enjoy a coffee, a meal or just a dessert in a setting adjacent to the garden. Just seeing "The Thinker" is a thrill to see, not to mention the excellent vantage point you'll have to snap the Thinker, the golden dome of Napoleon's Tomb and the Eiffel Tower all in one picture!

we only wanted to visit the garden, but this was unfortunately not possible, so we could only have a short look

Used to live in the street so visited often. The very cheap garden ticket no longer on offer (used to come here to relax) but it's still worth it. Garden is great; can get a snack; and the Rodin works are famous. Try and avoid crowds.

While some of Rodin's most famous works are displayed near me at Stanford University, this museum had so many more of his prolific works.

Since it's mostly an outdoor museum, plan to visit this on a nice day! There is so much to see and you can relax on benches and admire the art.
