I was stunned at how few sculptures there were and very little explanation of them. Would have liked some explanation of castings -- wax, plaster, metal -- how the sculptures were made. Also some info on Rodin's life.

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 :)
