|About these ratings|
A hidden jewel in the city, the Musée Rodin is actually the former residence of famed 19th century sculptor Auguste Rodin. But in the place of furniture and kitschy lawn ornaments are Rodin's emotive sculptures, including The Hand of God, The Kiss, and The Thinker, among many more.
Recent travelers say this museum—and especially the accompanying English-style rose garden—is a highlight of their trips. They also say that, unlike other Parisian museums, the Musée Rodin offers a serene and peaceful atmosphere.
The Musée Rodin is just a short walk from the Varenne metro stop near Les Invalides. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Admission to the museum (including permanent and temporary exhibits) costs €9 EUR (roughly $12 USD). Entry to the garden costs an additional €1 EUR (approximately $2 USD). Visit the museum's website for more information.
