Cheap Art: Jardin du Musée Rodin


Hand, Auguste Rpdin, Musée Rodin Paris 7th

If you can’t be fussed with paying the entrance fee to the museum itself, for a mere 1 € you can enjoy plenty of Auguste Rodin’s larger bronze sculptures in the gardens of his eponymous museum, located in Paris’ 7th.

Sadly Carla Bruni will not be your pouty personal tour guide, but audio guides are available at the front desk for the alfresco sculptures.

N.B. Some works, such as Le Penseur or the Thinker, have been moved from the garden into the museum for the temporary exhibit “Works in Progress: Rodin and the Ambassadors”.

Practical Info: Entrance to the garden is 1€ per person. Garden closes at 6 pm April through September, 5 pm October through March. Museum open everyday except Monday. For more info and tickets prices, consult:

  1. This is one of my favorite insider tips for people visiting, especially when on a budget. These gardens are fantastic and worth so much more than one euro. I was surprised to learn a while ago that before this museum was created, The Thinker was installed in front of the Pantheon! Happy to (re)discover your blog, keep up the good work!

      That place is such a gem. It’s so peaceful you almost forget you’re still in Paris, and then you glimpse the tip of the Eiffel tower peaking above the trees. It’s a magical sight!
