Rodin Museum: Explore the World’s Most Famous Sculptures

Since 1929, the Rodin Museum has been a fixture in Philadelphia’s impressive art scene. Though it’s neither as large as the Philadelphia Museum of Art nor as hip as some of the more modern galleries, the Rodin holds its own.

The entire museum is dedicated to the breathtaking sculptures of Auguste Rodin, including the famous The Thinker. It includes a main gallery in the style of Beaux-Arts architecture, and a traditional French garden created by famous French landscape designer Jacques Gréber is attached to the building. Though it may seem unassuming, the Rodin houses one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of art by one of the history’s most famous sculptors.

The Rodin Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, though it is always closed on Tuesdays. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, and $6 for students and kids. Children under the age of 12 are admitted free.
