"America's Rodin Museum" Rodin Museum Tip by Tom_Fields
Rodin Museum, Philadelphia: 21 reviews and 42 photos
The great French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) produced some of the finest works of art ever seen. The Rodin Museum in Paris is one of that city's best attractions. Not only does it have an impressive collection of art, but it also has very nice garden.
But Philadelphia has its own Rodin museum, too. Designed by French architects Paul Cret and Jacques Gréber, it rivals the one in Paris. It opened in 1929, financed by movie theater magnate Jules Mastbaum.
It's conveniently located near the Art Museum, so one can easily visit both during a day.
