Musée Rodin - le jardin du Hôtel Biron



Musée Rodin


This verdant scene is in the garden of Hôtel Biron, 
the site of Musée Rodin, and sits in the shadow of Les Invalides.


This quiet place in Paris is worth a visit 
to see the sculptures of Rodin 
as well as some of Camille Claudel.  
The garden includes some of Rodin's most recognizable 
works including The Thinker and The Gates of Hell.

If we were to have such a clean an orderly managed park, I would be amazed. But I am sure in your country, such a clean and tidy park is normal.

I would love to see the original sculpture of the thinker. Such an iconic artwork.

Et comme (presque) partout en France "Pelouse interdite".

Hello Genie:

This is somewhere to which we have never been and would like to.

Lovely post, Genie. How good it would be to meander through those stunning gardens and then go to see the incredible sculptures of Rodin! Maybe one day I will...

My all-time favorite museum in Paris. Loved having lunch there. Spectacular greenery in the photo.

Can't help it: My first thought when I come here is always "Imagine having this house and garden in the middle of Paris!"

I went there last September and it was so fabulous I didn't want to leave.

One day I WILL get there - until then, the joke is on me. How many times have we tried to go?! :-)
