RODIN MUSEUM

ESPAÑOL

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.

HOW TO VISIT

It is immediately east of Les Invalides, the nearest metro station is Varanne (line 13).

Schedule:

  • Closed on Mondays.
  • Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 5:45 pm (Wednesday until 20:45).

Prices:

  • Only the garden: 4 €. It is probably the best part of the museum.
  • Adult ticket: 10 €.
  • Reduced: 7 €, Wednesday from 6 pm, 18 to 25 non-EU years.
  • Free: under 18 (or 25 community). It’s included in the Paris Museum Pass.
