Musée Rodin

Musée Rodin

Hôtel Biron is a jewel of Parisian rocaille architecture, 
with its expansive park.

From the Musée Rodin website:

First opened to the public on 4 August 1919, 
the Musée Rodin was housed in a mansion, 
formerly called the Hôtel Peyrenc de Moras. 
Now known as the Hôtel Biron, it was built on Rue de Varenne 
between 1727 and 1732. Nearly 300 works from Rodin’s collection 
are on view in this mansion.

Do you know how long you have to stand here to capture 
a photo with absolutely no one but M. Rodin in view?

You must have waited a long long time to take the photo! How wonderful to know thatit opened again, renewed!

A nice angle for a photo of the stairs.

What a staircase! I imagine you had to be very patient.

A magic angle in a grate space.

It looks wonderfully restored!

Your patience was rewarded, Genie.

When I was there last year, the museum was being renovated and not much was open inside. A shame.

FOREVER! I was there with you and I'm guessing I gave up. You persisted!
