The museum houses the largest collection of work by Auguste Rodin, the father of modern sculpture. Rodin worked in the main building here, known as Hôtel Biron, and personally chose the location for all the pieces in the garden. It is such an idyllic setting, with rosebushes and fountains, that I go there twice a month just to read and draw. The life of Rodin is complex, so I suggest the audio guide. Also, don’t miss his masterpiece “The Gates of Hell,” located outside to the left of the entrance. He worked for years on it in plaster, but died before it was cast in bronze.

“Two huge buildings and one building is for food and the other is for clothes. High end shop but worth going just to look. The food building is my favorite and there’s 4 floors. Each floor is dedicated to either wine, groceries, kitchen supplies and then furniture. Beautiful place ”

“Majestic park overlooking the Luxembourg Palace. A visit here is most enjoyable at any time of the year. So much to see: the ducks swimming in front of the enormous Medici Fountain, children sending an armada of small boats across the pond, the parade of sculptures of the queens of France, the manicured Palace gardens. Take a seat and enjoy the people-watching! You can also just relax, enjoy a sandwich or read a book (plenty of chairs and benches). To do some jogging this is also a great place! Free entrance.”
