Housed in the Hôtel Biron, a ‘hôtel particulier’ dating from 1730, the Rodin Museum exhibits the works and collections of the sculptor Auguste Rodin.
Rodin gave his lifetime’s work to the State on the condition that it remained in the Hôtel Biron. The museum opened in 1919, two years after his death. The Rodin Museum is organising two temporary exhibitions in the Chapel which was built in 1876.
Some of sculptor’s greatest works (The Thinker, The Burghers of Calais) are displayed in the French gardens which boast a rose garden.
Free for under 18s. The permanent exhibition is free for under 26s.
