Rodin Museum, Philadelphia

4.6
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.

  • This is an incredibly interesting museum. Rodin was a talented artist and this museum goes beyond his works and teaches you about the person himself and give insight to his artistic method. I definitely recommend this museum to anyone. There is art for those who like beauty, history for those who are history buffs, and it's located right in the most interesting part of the city of Philadelphia. Enjoy your experience!
  • The most thorough representation of Rodin outside of Paris I have seen this far. I loved looking through the sketch books throughout the museum and wish I had time to make a sketch of my own. I will plan to spend more time here on my next trip to Philly!
