Activity Overview

Its building resembling a temple, the Rodin Museum sits on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway near the Philadelphia Museum of Art and contains close to 150 bronze, marble and plaster statues created by the famous, 19th-century, French sculptor.

Recently restored, the galleries contain a small version of The Thinker, a copy of The Kiss, and close to 30 of Rodin's works inspired by Dante's Divine Comedy.

Included on the list of garden-based sculptures is a larger version of The Thinker and also The Gates of Hell, Adam, The Shade, The Age of Bronze, Eve, and The Three Shades.

Things to Do

In addition to his sculptures, see Rodin's ideas for major French public monument commissions, many of which were rejected or only accepted when a number of changes were made.

View works from another French artist, Honoré de Balzac, in the northwest gallery of the museum.
