Almost 100% of tourists in Paris go to the Louvre Museum, the Orsay Museum, or both, and few are those who go to other museums, being me the first. I was not going, but my travel buddies insisted. Rodin is considered one of the fathers of modern sculpture, but I personally would not recommend the museum for a reason: many of his works, being bronze, are replicated and can be seen exposed elsewhere. In my case, I had seen replicas of the Thinker and the Burghers of Calais in my own city. In any case, I recommend the garden, not inside, unless for big fans of this sculptor.
