Musée Rodin

France > Paris

Background

Known for his incredible masterpieces like The Thinker and The Kiss, French sculptor Auguste Rodin is one of the most celebrated artists in the world. And so it's fitting that the impressive Musee Rodin in central Paris was opened in 1919 in honour of him. 

With its 18th century mansion, sprawling gardens and picturesque lake, it's hard to believe that this beautiful museum is right in the middle of the city, just steps from the Seine River and the Les Invalides military museum. Indeed, it's one of the most accessible museums in all of Paris, located just outside the Varenne and Invalides metro stops.

The collection at Musee Rodin is housed in the Hôtel Biron, a stunning example of Parisian rocaille architecture. Wander around the mansion and admire the exhibitions, then step out back to see the real star of the show: the lush gardens. Many of Rodin's sculptures can be found in this colourful outdoor oasis, which is spread over three hectares. There's also a charming cafe there that serves up salads, sandwiches and baked treats.

Other than Rodin's works, you can also see those created by his mistress Camille Claudel on display.
