With more than 140 bronzes, marbles, and plaster casts, the collection housed in the Rodin Museum represents every phase of Auguste Rodin's artistic career. Eight large-scale works are installed in the formal French garden.
From the iconic The Thinker positioned in front of the 1929 Beaux-Arts building, through The Gates of Hell, the massive bronze doors inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy, to the gallery holding a series of works honoring writer Honoré de Balzac, the Museum presents one of the most comprehensive public collections of Rodin's work outside Paris.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art administers the Rodin Museum and its collection.
