Why locals recommend it
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.

If you like sculpture, this is a small but lovely museum, not far from Les Invalides. Has a beautiful garden. Short visit.
