Full description
Explore the Rodin Museum with an expert art historian guide in a small group. The rooms are studded with sculptures and selections of more than 200 paintings that Rodin had accumulated over his life.

Explore his various studies of the human form, including numerous hands and the life-sized The Walking Man. Learn about his contemporaries, whom he depicted in clay, like the French writer Balzac. Discover the details of his masterpiece, The Gates of Hell, including the most recognizable of Rodin’s work, The Thinker.

After exploring the inside of the museum, you can stroll the beautifully manicured gardens where more sculptures are on display. Through this epic collection of his works, learn all about this renowned artist who became, even if unwittingly, a father of modern sculpture.
