Quite apart from the art displayed at the Rodin Museum in Paris, its building also is worth visiting.

The 18th century building was supposedly made as a residence. It is built in the center of three-acre gardens, each facing three sides of the building.

Lots of people who visit the Rodin Museum in Paris enjoy wandering around the gardens just as much as they adore the art exhibitions. Actually, several of Rodin's larger sculptures are set in the gardens adding an interesting artistic dimension to a naturally beautiful setting.

The art works inside the Rodin Museum are basically those belonging to Rodin. Nevertheless, a significant number of artworks belong to Camille Claudel, a French contemporary of Rodin. Some of the most famous pieces of art done by Rodin that can be seen at the museum include the Thinker, the Hand of God, the Kiss, and the Cathedral.
