Paris is full of art, history and delectable cuisine. It also hosts some of the best museums in the world. Musée Rodin is dedicated to the French sculpture, Auguste Rodin.
Established in 1919, Musée Rodin’s collection includes 6,600 sculptures, 8,000 drawings, and 7,000 objects. The collection is split up between two locations, one in a mason in central Paris, and another near Rodin’s old home in Muedon. Near the end of his life, Rodin donated most of his works to the French government under the condition that they turn these buildings into museums featuring his work.
In the Central Paris location, you’ll find sculptures like, The Thinker and The Kiss. The museum is spread out between inside the mansion and outside, in the gardens. As you first enter the museum’s gardens, you’ll find The Thinker, set beautifully with the Eiffel Tower and the Army Museum’s dome as its backdrop.
Aside from Rodin works, the museum also has features artists from Rodin’s personal collection, including sculptures and paintings by van Gogh, Monet, and Renoir.
This museum is part of the Paris Museum Pass, which allows you access to most of the museums in Paris.
