Musee Rodin is as much as an open air gallery as a museum with impressive interiors. The three hectare estate is a peaceful sanctuary in the heart of Paris.
The beautiful French gardens are the perfect backdrop to many of Rodin's large scale masterpieces including The Thinker, Balzac, Aphrodite, Orpheus, the Gates of Hell and Adam and Eve.
The early 18th century mansion is flanked by fragrant rose gardens with perfectly sculpted topiary. The building - built by Jean Aubert - became a museum in 1916 - an initiative by Rodin himself.
Inside the light filled space you will be treated with famed sculptures of Victor Hugo and Balzac and be moved by The Kiss and The Walking Man.
A lovely surprise is a selection of paintings from Rodin's personal collection including works by Renoir, Monet and Van Gogh.
Through the rippled glass French windows you can enjoy views down the garden's main axis, Parisian rooftops and other celebrated landmarks.
The garden cafe is a wonderful place to repose and rest your feet and imagine what life was like living and creating art in such an inspiring environment.
