The Rodin Museum is home to some of the most famous sculptures of the 20th Century, all buy the ‘Father of Modern Sculpture’ – Augustine Rodin.
The Museum was Rodin’s home while he lived out the last years of his life in Paris and after his death the house and his most important and famous works (‘The Kiss’, the ‘Gates of Hell’, the ‘Burghers of Calais’ and the iconic ‘Thinker’ to name but a few) became the property of the city.
The museum has a quiet and peaceful atmosphere and the back garden is a lovely place for a picnic on a sunny day.
Even if you’re not into sculpture, it’s hard not to be impressed by Rodin’s expressive forms.
