Reviews Rodin Musée
The Musee Rodin is situated in Paris and was opened in 1991 in Hotel Biron and its surrounding grounds. One can get to see display artwork of French sculptor, Auguste Rodin. Rodin used the hotel as his residence from 1908 and had donated his collection to the French State, with the condition that they turn the building into a museum dedicated to his works. Worth seeing displays are the Thinker, the Gates of Hell and the Kiss.
