The Musée Rodin (former Hotel Biron) and its gardens. was Rodin’s home and work place. Rodin's important sculptures are exposed inside the building and in its surrounding gardens. “The Thinker” and “the Kiss” are exposed in the gardens. The works of Camille Claudel are also presented in the museum.

What a thrill to see the works of Rodin in such a peaceful ,beautiful setting. I decided to be silly and pose exactly as one of the sculptures for a picture. The people who saw me do this were quite amused and laughed. As we were strolling the garden I caught a glimpse of those same people doing the same thing...I think I started a trend!

While there this summer with my students, we went to the Rodin Museum. They were having a retrospective of the work of Camille Claudel, mistress of Rodin and wonderful sculptor. While her life was tragic, her art is full of life. Her best sculptures are the small onyx works of The Gossips and The Wave. Her plaster casts are also full of life. I especially loved Clotho the old crone who determines the fates. Rodin of course, was such a master. We especially enjoyed the gardens with the sculptures, the Gates of Hell which you must inspect up close and personal to see the damned writhing in their misery. The Burghers of Calais were what we had studied in art history but it is so different seeing then in person. The Rodin Museum is a must see in Paris, you will not be overwhelmed as in the Louvre.

This Museum is really serene and has a brilliant collect of Rodin sculptures. Alot of them are in the gardens which surround the main house. If you don't like Rodin sculptures or you're not crazy about art then this is still a good place to come because it's so relaxing and beautiful. Only problem is, you do have to pay to get in :-)

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon... the gardens and the house are almost an entirely separate world... quiet, beautiful, still and serene. I really enjoyed this slightly off-the-beaten-path home of a brilliant artist. The Camille Claudel rooms are absolutely wonderful too!
