Admire sculptures by Auguste Rodin
This museum dedicated entirely to sculpture is situated near the Invalides and Eiffel Tower, approximately 30 minutes by foot from our Hotel Relais Saint Charles. The museum is named after the famous artist, Auguste Rodin, undeniably considered a genius of sculpture.
Before becoming a museum, the building was a manor constructed at the turn of the eighteenth century, where Rodin lived as a renter, since 1908. The artwork displayed at the museum retraces Auguste Rodin’s career through a collection of his emblematic sculptures such as Le Penseur, which would later become an icon of Western art, Le Baiser, Les bourgeois de Calais or even Les Portes de l’Enfer.
The museum is surrounded by a serene and romanticist garden measuring 3 hectares. Sculptures by Auguste Rodin are dispersed in this French styled-garden, adorned with a myriad of plants, trees and shrubs.
