Rodin Museum
The charming Musée Rodin is nestled in a beautiful manicured Rose Garden, with a view of the Eiffel Tower in the background. This was Rodin's studio from 1910, until his death in 1917.

World-Famous Sculptures
The courtyard holds three of his world-famous sculptures — The Thinker (top right; Alana's favorite... and perhaps his best-known work), The Burghers of Calais, and The Gates of Hell.



There are also a number of other famous sculptures and bronzes located throughout the museum and its gardens.

The Kiss
Inside the Musée Rodin, sits another classic and world-famous sculpture — The Kiss (pictured right).

One of our favorite movies depicting the magic and romance of Paris (with scenes at Musée Rodin) is Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" — the 2011 movie is a must-see for Paris lovers!



Fun Events
Plan a Private Group Tour of this charming Museum and Sculpture Garden. Call Musée Rodin directly to inquire about hosting a Corporate Event.
