What will you see inside the Rodin Museum?

The Rodin Museum was originally the Hôtel Biron, a private mansion built in the 18th century. It was converted into a museum in 1919 and houses Rodin's sculptures, paintings, drawings and personal effects.

Inside the Rodin Museum, you will see some of Rodin's most famous sculptures, including "The Thinker," which is arguably his best-known work. You'll also get to see his private collection of paintings, which includes works by artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso.

The museum's grounds are equally as impressive as the interior, with beautiful gardens and outdoor sculptures for you to enjoy. With this beautiful natural backdrop, Rodin's sculptures are truly brought to life.

These include "The Gates of Hell," a huge bronze door covered in intricate details and "The Burghers of Calais," a group of six life-size figures.

If you have time, sit in the gardens and take in the sculptures, as you enjoy a bit of sun and a moment of peace away from the busy streets of Paris.

How to get to the Rodin Museum?

The Rodin Museum is located in the seventh arrondissement of Paris, on the Left Bank of the Seine River. It's a short walk from Les Invalides and roughly 2 kilometers from the Eiffel Tower.

The easiest way to get to the Rodin Museum is to take the Metro Line 13 to the Saint-François-Xavier station. From there, the museum is only a 10-minute walk away.

Even if you do not take the metro to the museum, it can be a great experience to get there on foot. A walk through Paris presents plenty of opportunities to enjoy a sunny day and spot small cafes and shops along the way.

When is the best time to visit the Rodin Museum?

The Rodin Museum is open from 10 AM to 6:30 PM every day except Monday when it is closed. The best time to go is as soon as it opens or in the late afternoon in order to avoid the crowds. Peak times tend to be between 12 PM and 4 PM.

The museum is quieter on weekdays, so this is an optimal time to visit if you can. Wednesday and Thursday tend to be the quietest days.
