Foursquare Tips

  • Be sure to stop and rest at the front gardens reflecting pool and the tapestry of Japanese Ilex, shrubs and colorful flowers, some dating back to the 1920s.
  • It has a very zen garden that I think everyone should come and relax at
  • Love this spot!
  • The sight of Philadelphias The Thinker at the front of The Rodin Museums columned entryway is a replica of Rodins burial site in Meudon, France. Compare the two sites to see the resemblance.
  • A total sleeper hit in the shadows of the PMA and Barnes. If you're looking for something different to check out, visit Rodin
  • One of the prettiest parts of the museum district.
  • O museu minsculo. No reserve mais que 30 minutos pra visita-lo com folga.
  • this is the bigger Rodin's collection spite the original one at Europa. Its a awesome place to learn about.
  • Head down the Ben Franklin Parkway and stop at the Rodin Museum. It's a quick visit and the sculpture within is stunning.
  • While you're in the neighborhood, visit "Dead Sea Scrolls," 1 of the largest collections of ancient artifacts ever to tour outside Israel. Save $5 on daytime tix w/ the code DSS4SQ. Now thru Oct. 14
  • Don't miss the gates of hell
  • Check out this historic site before it closes for renovations in September 2011. The museum, a gift to the city from Jules Mastbaum, is the largest collection of Auguste Rodins work outside Paris.
  • Hang out in the really cute courtyard and "Think." See what I did there?
  • A serene spot with some great art and beautiful grounds. Enjoy the escape from the city.
  • Wonderful selection
  • Suggested donations. Please support the arts for those who can't!
  • Not as big as I thought it would be. But brilliant nonetheless. Big fan of Rodin now. (Use part of your 2 day ticket to the Phila Museum of Art.)
  • Not a huge museum, although the largest collection of Rodin's sculptures outside of Paris. Make sure you wander around outside as week as inside.
  • The outside sculptures are stunning replicas, especially the pieces from his gates of hell.
  • Inspiring artist well worth checking out if you haven't visited this museum. I would stop by every day and study the sculptures outside on my way to school. Rodin is an amazing artist:)
