Rodin Museum houses the world's second largest collection of famous sculptor Auguste Rodin's works--the largest one outside of Paris. Opened in 1929, it was a gift to the city of Philadelphia from Jules Mastbaum, a movie-theater magnate and an avid collector of Rodin's works. The famous Thinker sits in the museum garden in front of the entrance. Once inside, you can see masterpieces like the Gates of Hell, inspired by Dante's Divine Comedy; the Kiss; the Burghers of Calais; and many others. Take time to view many lesser-known works, as well as prints, studies, castings, drawings, and Rodin's personal items.

  • A must for Rodin fans, but a lovely visit for anyone. Not a large museum, but a nice place to wander the grounds.

  • Beautiful and informative. The gardens are very pretty too. Perfect activity for a nice day. I found it interesting they leave sketchbooks for people.
  • What a perfect stop. Thoroughly enjoyed the sculptures and understanding the process. Approachable art at suggested donations. I'll definitely come back.
