When I first heard about the Rodin Museum, I wasn't sure I was going to go as I had already seen two Rodin exhibits that included his most famous masterpieces. However, my good friend Linda had said so much good things about the museum's gardens that I decided to go anyways, and I'm really glad she talked me into going! Even if you've seen Rodin's sculptures before in a museum, to see them outside in the beautiful gardens of the Hotel Biron, where Rodin lived and work from 1908 until his death in 1917, adds a lot of emotions to the works of art. You will find more sculptures inside Hotel Biron, including some by Rodin's student and lover Camille Claudel, as well as some paintings, including Van Gogh's Le Pere Tanguy.

The museum is closed on Mondays. It costs 9 Euros to visit both the gardens and Hotel Biron, or 6 Euros for the gardens only (you can use your Museum Pass if you have one).
